Visual Studio 2022 Announced

This is wonderful news for anybody that uses VS2019 or below on a regular basis. The features that are coming for the new VS2022 are definitely worth a look. The first preview is set for Q3 in 2021, meaning that by the end of Summer we can get our hands on the first cut and check it out for ourselves.

From what we have read so far the new release is going to be the first version that is truly 64 bit. Giving full access to all of the memory in your system. Older versions have always been 32 bit which has stifled the development community of the years. You can still build 32 bit apps however, as that functionality is retained.

Cascadia Code

New font! Cascadia Code. Yep, we get a new font to use for coding. Here’s what it looks like. If you want to give it a try ahead of time then you can download it here.

.Net v6

Visual Studio 2022 will have full support for .NET 6 and its unified framework for web, client, and mobile apps for both Windows and Mac developers. That includes the .NET Multi-platform App UI (.NET MAUI) for cross-platform client apps on Windows, Android, macOS, and iOS. You can also use ASP.NET Blazor web technologies to write desktop apps via .NET MAUI.

For the future collaboration of remote teams and the development of apps in the Azure environment, VS2022 is going to be a game changer. You can read the full announcement for the Microsoft Dev Team here.
