DevExpress Universal v16.1.8 supports Visual Studio 2017 RC

Earlier this morning we released v16.1.8 of DevExpress Universal. Normally such a minor release would not necessitate a blog post – after all, minor releases are about bug fixes and performance enhancements and not by definition about new features – but this time we wanted to highlight some fresh functionality that coincides with an important announcement by Microsoft at their Connect(); conference in New York.

That announcement? Microsoft have released the Release Candidate of Visual Studio 2017. VS2017 has numerous new features and enhancements, too many to detail here, but one of them is kind of important from our viewpoint: they’ve changed the installation procedure for not only Visual Studio itself (you can install only what you want – biggest change: no need to install .NET support if you’re not developing for that run-time), but also of external components, libraries and plug-ins as well. To help you test out this new IDE with your favorite component and tools library, we’ve added VS2017 RC support to our installer.

So, hurry over to the Download Center, download DevExpress Universal 16.1.8, install into VS2017 RC, and enjoy!
