Visual Studio 2012 Update 5 RC Available

As part of the 2015 wave of releases, in addition to the 2015 products and a 2013 Update 5, we are also releasing a VS 2012 Update 5 (not one for TFS 2012 though).  This Update includes a few bug fixes.  The most notable, from my perspective, are some changes to make using VS 2012 with a TFS or VS Online Team Project that gets renamed.  This update will handle some of the local reaction work, like workspace updates, automatically rather than relying on manual fix-ups.

I don’t have a date for the final release but I don’t believe it’s going to be more than a few weeks and I doubt we’ll be adding more fixes at this point.

P.S. I apologize for the quality of the release notes in that link.  I’m working on getting them fixed.  I don’t understand why we sometimes write lists of changes that are completely unintelligible or confusing.
