Today we announced a new method of delivering updates using a notification system many Visual Studio developers should be familiar with: the Visual Studio Extension Manager. Developers will now be notified in Visual Studio when updates are available.
When the notification balloon is clicked, Extension Manager will open to a new node: Product Updates. Clicking the Update button will download the update so you can run it.
We’d love to hear your feedback on the Visual Studio blog post, and should you have any problems installing it on Visual Studio 11 Beta (v11.0.50214.1) please download and run our log collection utility and visit our forum or file a bug on Microsoft Connect.
