Visual Studio 2013 + DevExpress = Production Ready !

I’ve written before about my preference for using the latest versions of products, so it should come as no surprise that as soon as Microsoft announced Visual Studio 2013 was RTM for MSDN subscribers I jumped straight on and downloaded. I have been running the beta and RC versions but not as my main environment. Of course there are always major considerations when swapping to a new version of your main developer tools, the biggest question… will 3rd party tools work ??  Well the good news (at least for DX Customers) is YES, with only a couple of minor exceptions, the existing 13.1.7 build of our .NET products works already. The great news is that this coming week we will be releasing a minor update that has FULL support for VS2013 including an update for those customers still using 12.2.  Already this weekend, I have seen a local developer deploy two web site updates and a winforms app using Visual Studio 2013 and our 13.1 controls.

I know some developers have only recently switched to VS2012, so it again makes me raise the question.. what stops you from upgrading?
