  • Sign in across multiple accounts With Visual Studio 2015, the new streamlined sign-in experience is designed to greatly simplify your access to online resources, even when you have multiple Visual Studio accounts. After you sign-in to Visual Studio, you are automatically signed in to all instances of Visual Studio 2015 and Blend on your machine. Signing in automatically starts roaming your settings for you.
  • Choose your target platform(s) Visual Studio 2015 supports cross-platform mobile device development. You can write apps and games that target iOS, Android, and Windows and share a common code base, all from within the Visual Studio IDE. You’ll see all these new project types in the File, New Project dialog.And—of course—support for classic desktop applications is better than ever, with lots of improvements to languages, libraries, and tools.
  • Cross-platform mobile apps in C# with Xamarin for Visual Studio Xamarin is a mobile framework that enables you to write code in C# that binds natively to iOS and Android APIs. Microsoft has partnered closely with Xamarin on their release of Xamarin for Visual Studio, an extension that enables you to develop for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone in a single solution with shared code. With Xamarin, you’ll use one language and one code base with minimal deltas between the platforms. Xamarin for Visual Studio is supported on Visual Studio 2010 and later. The starter edition of Xamarin is is included in Visual Studio 2015.
  • Cross-platform mobile apps in HTML/JavaScript with Apache Cordova Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova is the result of close collaboration between Microsoft and the open source Apache Cordova community. The tools enable cross-platform mobile development using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (or Typescript). You can target Android, iOS, and Windows with a single code base and enjoy the richness of the Visual Studio IDE including JavaScript IntelliSense, the DOM Explorer, JavaScript Console, breakpoints, watches, locals, Just My Code, and more.
  • Universal Windows apps for any Windows 10 device With the Universal Windows Platform and our one Windows core, you can run the same app on any Windows 10 device from phones to desktops. Create these Universal Windows apps with Visual Studio 2015 and the Universal Windows App Development tools.
  • Web ASP.NET 5 is a major update to MVC, WebAPI and SignalR, and runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. ASP.NET 5 has been designed from the ground up to provide you with a lean and composable .NET stack for building modern cloud-based apps. The Visual Studio 2015 tooling is more closely integrated with popular web development tools such as Bower and Grunt.
  • Classic desktop and Windows Store Visual Studio 2015 continues to support classic desktop and Windows Store development. As Windows evolves, Visual Studio will evolve along with it. In Visual Studio 2015, the libraries and languages for .NET as well as C++ have made significant advances that are applicable to all versions of Windows.
  • The .NET Framework The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 offers about 150 new APIs and 50 updated APIs to enable more scenarios. For example, more collections now implement IReadOnlyCollection making them easier to use. In addition, ASP.NET 5, mentioned previously, offers a lean .NET platform for building modern cloud-based apps.Windows Store apps written in C# that target the .NET Framework can now take advantage of .NET Native, which compiles apps to native code rather than IL, and .NET Framework 4.6 also adds RyuJIT, a 64-bit Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler.The new C# and VB compilers ("Roslyn") significantly speed up compile times and provide comprehensive code analysis APIs. Visual Studio 2015 takes advantage of Roslyn to provide more refactorings including inline rename, analyzers, and quick fixes.
  • Live code analysis (light bulbs) The new Roslyn compiler for C# and Visual Basic not only provides faster compile times—it also enables completely new scenarios such as live code analysis, which provide rich and customizable feedback and suggestions directly inside the code editor as you type. In Visual Studio 2015, light bulbs display in the left margin (when using the keyboard) or a tool tip (when hovering over an error with the mouse). The light bulb tells in real time that the compiler (possibly using a custom rule set) has detected an issue in your code and also has a suggestion for how to fix the issue.
