Why Visual F# Power Tools?
Visual F# Power Tools is a community effort to bring useful F# VS extensions into a single home for the following purposes:
- Easy maintenance and upgrade
- Sharing common functionalities and reducing conflicts between F# VS extensions
- Adding new features which complement Visual F# Tools
NOTE: Since v2.0.0, we no longer officially support Visual Studio 2012. An archived v2.0.0 compatible with Visual Studio 2012 is kept at AppVeyor deployment in case someone needs it. Alternatively, one can build vs2012 branch for Visual Studio 2012 support.
