Microsoft releases Visual Studio 2017 Preview 15.2 - here's what's changed

Following its initial announcement in November of last year, Microsoft went on to officially release Visual Studio 2017 early last month. At the same time, the company announced an Insider-like program for the Integrated Development Environment, entitled Visual Studio Preview.

This week, the latest Preview version has dropped, namely 15.2 (26412.01). Here's the list of changes in this release:

And here are the top issues fixed in this version of the preview:

  • A debugger crash in C++ code that uses the typeid operator is now fixed.
  • Customers using website projects would see crashes when right clicking in the solution explorer that are now fixed.
  • A crash when using the HTML editor in .Net core web projects.

As always, the software giant does not recommend you use this version for "production computers or creating production code". That said, if you are curious and want to test this out, the latest version can be obtained at this link.
