GitHub Extension for Visual Studio
The GitHub Extension for Visual Studio provides GitHub integration in Visual Studio 2015. Most of the extension UI lives in the Team Explorer pane, which is available from the View menu.
Official builds of this extension are available at the official website.
Installing beta versions
Older and pre-release/beta/untested versions are available at the releases page, and also via a custom gallery feed for Visual Studio.
You can configure the gallery by going to
Tools / Options / Extensions and Updates and adding a new gallery with the url https://visualstudio.github.com/releases/feed.rss. The gallery will now be available from
Tools / Extensions and Updates.
Beta releases will have
(beta) in their title in the gallery, following the version number. You can view the release notes in the gallery by hovering over the description, or by clicking the
Release Notes link on the right side.
