Visual Studio 2017 RC available

Visual Studio 2017 RC! is now available for download. Download here for free (during trial period):

I am not sure probably it also went by the name Visual Studio "15".

Read the release notes here as it provides you with most of the enhancements to the IDE; layout for off-line installation; new commandline installation;code navigation related improvements and many more. The release note runs several pages covering all aspects of Visual Studio.
Download release notes here:

Interesting about the installation is there is a new installer which has good features:

  • Reduce the minimum footprint of Visual Studio.
  • Install more quickly with less system impact, and uninstall cleanly.
  • Make it easier for you to select and install just the features you need.
Earlier you had editions targeting Windows Desktop, Windows Web etc.

There seems to be Visual Studio Community 2017 (yours to keep edition) but I cannot find any links to it except this one:

You will hear from me here when I find it.
