Utkarsh Shigihalli and Tarun Arora released v1.2 of the News extension, which allows you to get Visual Studio Online news and updates inside Visual Studio.
What I noticed immediately is the option of not only keeping track of Visual Studio Online Updates and Visual Studio Service Blogs, but also selecting which ALM Ranger blog notifications you like to see within the IDE.
One stop shop for those working in Visual Studio IDE a lot. I it!
Check it out and please give Utkarsh and Tarun candid feedback!
