Microsoft has released Visual Studio 2022 17.2, it improves C# and .NET experiences, Git performance, there are updates for C++, and new Azure tools for local development and deployment. In addition to this release, Microsoft has made Visual Studio 2022 17.3 Preview 1 available for download which brings tooling support for .NET MAUI to Visual Studio.
On top of all the new features VS 2022 17.2 delivers, Microsoft has addressed more than 400 issues given as feedback by the community. Some of the most upvoted issues that were fixed in this update include ‘Window switching in Windows 11 taskbar stops working when application is debugging in VS 2022’, ‘An error occurred while initializing the frame’s content’, and ‘visual studio 2022 hangs randomly’. These seem like some pretty annoying issues to have had to contend with so, hopefully, the 17.2 update makes things a lot better.
The new changes in Visual Studio 2022 17.2 are quite technical and long-winded to explain but you can check out the fairly comprehensive explanations in Microsoft’s announcement on its Dev Blog.
