In the wee hours of the morning this morning, we made the final versions of Visual Studio 2013, Team Foundation Server 2013 and .NET 4.51 available.  You can download the trials and related products and MSDN subscribers can download the licensed product from the subscriber portal.  You can learn more about what’s new in VS 2013 here.

Windows 8.1 is also available today.  It’s quick and easy to upgrade from the store so get it soon.

On November 13th, we’ll be hosting the Visual Studio 2013 launch.  At launch, we’ll be highlighting the breadth and depth of new features and capabilities in the Visual Studio 2013 release.

Getting VS 2013 is easy.  If you have an active MSDN subscription, you already own it.  If you don’t you can upgrade your VS Pro subscription for $99, for a limited time.  Check out purchasing options here: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/buy

VS 2013 can be installed side by side with previous versions of Visual Studio or, if you have a VS 2013 pre-release, it can be installed straight over  top of the pre-release.  TFS 2013 cannot be installed side by side but can also be installed over top of either a previous version (TFS 2012 or TFS 2010) or a pre-release.

We’re already hard at work planning for the improvements we will make in VS/TFS 2013.1 so expect to hear more over in the next few months.
