PTVS 2.2 is now available for download from our Releases section, or find it in the Visual Studio 2015 installer under Custom, Programming Languages. (PTVS 2.1 is still available from CodePlex for users on Visual Studio 2012 and 2010.)

Visit our page on for an overview, and check out our Getting Started series on YouTube.

Our documentation is now on the wiki (feel free to help us improve it), and we manage all of our issues here on the issue tracker. Pull requests and feature suggestions are welcome - see the Contributing section for information or chat with us on gitter though the button above.

Thank you for using and supporting Python Tools for Visual Studio.
