Microsoft Releases Visual Studio 2012 Update 2

Microsoft has officially released the second update for its Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE). According to the company, the update includes improvements in five different areas: Agile planning, quality enablement, line-of-business development, Windows Store development and developer experience.

Microsoft’s Soma Somasegar blogged, “With VS2012.2, Team Foundation Server (TFS) has been augmented with an additional variety of features to help make it even easier for Agile teams to do their planning, in particular around adapting to a team’s preferences and work styles. For example, VS2012.1 introduced new project tracking options, including a Kanban board and a cumulative flow diagram; VS2012.2 augments those experiences with the ability to customize the Kanban board to adapt it for an organization’s needs. Other features include work item tagging that provides a simple and flexible way to add metadata to work items in support of better organization and reporting, support for emailing work items via the TFS Web Access portal, and more.”

Microsoft released the first update to Visual Studio 2012 about four months ago. The new update can be downloaded from Microsofts Download Center.
