First CTP of Visual Studio "14"

Yeah you heard it correct, Visual Studio "14" is on the way and most likely it will be available by 2015. This will include few major updates of Roslyn with better refactoring support, new ASP.Net templates for vNext, new features of C++ 11 and much more. List of known issues with Visual Studio "14" and download details can be found here.

So, get ready for something new again :)

C# 6.0 with Visual Studio 2014

Today while surfing internet, I came across a very interesting interview snippet from Anders Hejlsberg and Charles Torre, in which they talked about the future version of C#, which will be 6.0. I hope most of you are aware that .Net version shipped with Visual Studio 2013 was the minor release with numbers as 4.5.1, which was just an upgrade of version 4.5. It is expected that all the major changes will be part of .Net 5.0 which will be shipped with Visual Studio 2014.

Another nice thing which came out is, C# 6.0 will be based on the new compiler Roslyn, which is written in C# itself rather than C++.

We can also expect some of the very cool features of C# 6.0 as:

  • Primary Constructors
  • Readonly auto properties
  • Static type using statements
  • Property expressions
  • Method expressions
  • Params for enumerables
  • Monadic null checking
  • Constructor type parameter inference
  • Inline declarations for out params

All the probable features of C# 6.0 will make life of developers bit more easier. The glimpse of all these features were provided at New Developers Conference recently held in London.

Well, so keep waiting till everything become reality ;)
