Developers can now download the new Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 after a special day long launch event on April 2. Microsoft released VS 2019 for both Windows & Mac. 

Microsoft says VS 2019 allows faster access to begin coding by, "making it simpler to clone a Git repo or to open an existing project or folder" and making template selection screen improvements. 

Microsoft Corporate Vice President for Visual Studio, John Montgomery, highlighted other new features including:

  • Improved code navigation and additional refactorings
  • Document health indicator
  • One-click code clean-up to apply multiple refactoring rules
  • Improved debugging: data breakpoints for .NET Core apps that break only on value changes you’re looking for.
  • AI-assisted code completion with Visual Studio IntelliCode.

Visual Studio for Mac also received a significant update but not all the new features have been finalised.

VS 2019 for Mac includes an entirely new C+ editor but remains an opt-in only option for now. You can find out the details here
