Microsoft's John Montgomery, director of program management for Visual Studio, has officially announced Visual Studio 2019. Details are scanty so far, but Montgomery said, "Expect more and better refactorings, better navigation, more capabilities in the debugger, faster solution load, and faster builds. But also expect us to continue to explore how connected capabilities like Live Share can enable developers to collaborate in real time from across the world and how we can make cloud scenarios like working with online source repositories more seamless. Expect us to push the boundaries of individual and team productivity with capabilities like IntelliCode, where Visual Studio can use Azure to train and deliver AI-powered assistance into the IDE."
He added, "As for timing of the next release, we'll say more in the coming months, but be assured we want to deliver Visual Studio 2019 quickly and iteratively."
