I realized it’s not really right for me to say we’ve shipped 75 releases in the past 18 months and then leave you to guess what they were. I asked Jeff for the slide he presented and have copied the data here. It’s roughly categorized. I’m not promising the categorization is completely accurate or that we haven’t left out anything but it’s close enough. It would be nice if I had dates and download links for each one but that would be quite a bit of effort for me to track down.
On my last post there was quite a lot of commentary on the VS update process and I’ve seen this issue of semantic versioning come up several times. I have several thoughts on this I’d like to discuss but I think I’ll save that for a new post.
Here’s the list of releases. This list was put together around the end of June so, it’s the 18 months before that. This includes all of DevDiv, so it’s not just Visual Studio, it’s .NET, Silverlight, Expression, etc too.
