Today we announced that support for C++ in the Class Designer has been cut. There were several tools in C++ that required attention – for example support for Intellisense, Project System, Build System, Class Diagramming, etc. We believed that we will not be able to address all the issues in all of these features by product release. In the end we decided to concentrate on those features that will benefit the C++ developer the most and delivering a high quality experience around them. Personally this was a very difficult and highly emotional decision for me as our team had spent considerable time and effort into enabling support for C++.
Your thoughts and feedback are welcome.
