Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 Released!
The latest update for Visual Studio 2013 is now available for download. You can read about all the new features on the Visual Studio blog, Soma’s blog and Brian Harry’s blog. There are some important changes to the publishing of SharePoint apps. Specifically, the autohosted app for SharePoint program is closed. New autohosted apps are not accepted by SharePoint Online anymore. Existing autohosted apps can still run and be updated at this moment. The Office team will post future updates on the Office blog. The Publish Wizard has been updated accordingly to give you a warning about the autohosting change. If you are currently hosting your app as autohosted, see How to: Upgrade a SharePoint-enabled LightSwitch App for a step-by-step explanation how to move your app to use providerhost.
