Today, we have released Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 CTP2, a go-live Team Foundation Server 2013 RC and TypeScript 1.0 RC. This update release preview includes several significant feature additions as well as fixes. You can see full details in the release notes.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out these posts:
On the Visual C++ side, in addition to stuff done in CTP1, this update lets a developer specify his program be compiled to target latest-generation processors that support the AVX2 instruction set.
Note that this is an early version for you to check out; you will receive a reminder through the Notification Hub in Visual Studio when the final version is ready. As always, we want to hear your suggestions or feature ideas/improvements on UserVoice or vote on other user’s suggestions, Visual Studio Connect site for bugs, our C++ Facebook page for general comments or drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org).
