The Red Queen once said, “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!“.

Several days ago Microsoft released a preview of the Visual Studio’s next version – Visual Studio 2013 Preview (it can be downloaded from the official Visual Studio site). So Data Abstract for .NET and RemObjects SDK for .NET (as well as the other Visual-Studio-based editions) were updated to support the new Visual Studio version, and I can gladly report that New Project Wizard, DA LINQ Wizard and other IDE integration stuff “just works” in the new IDE.

Visual Studio 2013

To let you get started with Visual Studio 2013 yourself, we have made a new Gamma release available on Note even though this version is technically a pre-release, it is identical to the May 2013 release except for the added VS2013 support, and should be very stable and production safe. We will release a ‘real’ Beta soon with other bug fixes and improvements (and marc lets me know that an Oxygene 6.1 beta with VS2013 support is imminent, as well).
