Visual Studio 2013 is here (for some values of “here”)

October 22, 2013 in Data Abstract, Elements, Visual Studio

The time has come, and Visual Studio 2013 is officially RTMed and available on MSDN, even though the official launch event is not scheduled until November 13th.

What does Visual Studio 2013 mean for our users?

Oxygene has been ready for Visual Studio 2013 for a while now (and i personally have been using 2013 exclusively ever since i redid my development VMs earlier this year and when VS2013 was still a private CTP we weren’t allowed to talk about). Visual Studio 2013 support for Oxygene made it into our public releases back in August, and our latest September 2013 update is fully ready for the RTM version of Visual Studio 2013. SO if you have an MSDN subscription, you can download your copy now, run the latest Oxygene installer, and you’ll get the full Oxygene experience in the fresh new IDE.

We’ll be rolling out the Visual Studio 2013 Shell with Oxygene in our upcoming (major!) November 2013 release. (We got one more release coming up before, the incremental October 2013 update, but that had been locked down before the RTM was available, and also we’ve been asked to hold of shipping the 2013 Shell until after the official launch event. ;).

Data Abstract and RemObjects SDK also have been made ready for Visual Studio 2013 with the last update we shipped in September. This applies to the .NET editions, Data Abstract for JavaScript and also – if you are using Oxygene – the editions for Java and Cocoa. We’ll be doing more testing with the RTM release, and the next update might include additional tweaks and improvements to round this off.
