What's New?

  • When you exit the VSMac application from the dock, main menu, or restart the IDE through Preferences or Updater, the editor's unsaved modifications are not preserved; instead, they become available once again when you resume the IDE and open the previous solution.
  • The status bar at the base of the IDE now includes functionality and information about Git branches. By clicking on the branch indicator, one can choose a Git branch. Changes are additionally noted in the status bar.
  • Code is formatted once more using Format Document and Format Selection in line with formatting configuration. The developers of Visual Studio for Mac are still investigating formatting issues.
