Microsoft has announced, that Visual Studio 2015, Team Foundation Server 2015 and .NET Framework 4.6 will be released on the 20th of July, a week and half prior to the big Windows 10 Public release.

The announcement was made in a blog by S. Somasegar, Corporate VP of the Developer Division at Microsoft. Somasegar says that the new Studio is specifically meant for cross-platform mobile development targeting iOS, Android and Windows, game development targeting Unity, Unreal, Cocos and more. Christmas has surely come early for developers as they will now get the opportunity to work with different platforms using a single engine.

Other features of the new Visual Studio are going to be proactive diagnostics tooling and the new Roslyn language services for C# and VB.

Here’s what Somasegar had to share about the new iteration of Microsoft’s development engine:

Visual Studio 2015 is a big release.  We are opening up Visual Studio to developers targeting new platforms – from cross-platform mobile development targeting iOS, Android and Windows, to game development targeting Unity, Unreal, Cocos and more.  At the same time, Visual Studio 2015 redefines developer productivity with proactive diagnostics tooling and the new Roslyn language services for C# and VB.  And together, Visual Studio 2015, Team Foundation Server 2015 and Visual Studio Online help teams to embrace DevOps with great agile backlog management, Azure cloud tooling, hosted continuous integration, and Application Insights across all the components of your application.

The final software will be available for download on July 20 at 3:30 pm UTC. You can also engross yourself in online interactive Q&A sessions with the engineering team on the same day along with over 60 on-demand video tutorials on the new features of Visual Studio 2015.

He ends the note with a Namaste ! Just thought I should mention this…
