One thing that really put a great impact upon new version release is the small size.

The New version size is so small as compared to the older versions. Also it install in just few minutes as compared to older versions who toke long number of hours to complete the installation.

One more feature that really impress every developer, now you can you can Install Required NuGet Package directly from Intellisense.

And not only that. Let say if you’ve install some NuGet package by Mistake, Simply do “Ctrl+Z” and undo that installation.

And Then you think oh! you’ve done it by mistake! Simply do “Ctrl+Y” And Redo Install that Package…

Another cool thing is the new editor style. That would really help developers to manage the mode…

And these are just the few features. There are lot more features to come that would really make the developers’ life so much easier than today…
