will VS RTM be available to download before ship / release date ?

vbcodec commented Feb 11, 2017 edited

what realy means "Infrastructure and planning for point releases" ?
Releasing of compilers independent from VS ? (similar to Typescript)

jmarolf commented Feb 11, 2017

@vbcodec every feature checked into the master branch made it into the latest public RC. Features checked into post-dev15 will likely not be in the initial version of Visual Studio 2017. Regarding point releases, its unclear exactly what we are going to do (we are still planning after all), but I believe that the LDM wants release independence like typescript. Frankly, this is something we will want feedback on regarding the right release cadence.

#6543 and #16664 are not the same thing though. :)


@alrz wrong thread?

alrz commented Feb 11, 2017

No, linked PR for the second refactoring in post-rtw doesn't seem to be correct.

jmarolf commented Feb 11, 2017
