    I feel the new features are worth the effort to upgrade and have done so.

    Hi aspfun,

    The latest type of VS have a good improvement in performance.Here are advantages in new  version vs.

    • VS2019 could help us save time and improve efficiency in development.
    • Improved search.Search results appear dynamically as you type. And, search results can often include keyboard shortcuts for commands, so that you can more easily memorize them for future use.
    • Refactorings.
    • IntelliCode. Visual Studio IntelliCode is an extension that enhances your software development efforts by using artificial intelligence (AI).
    • Code cleanup. Paired with a new document health indicator is a new code cleanup command. You can use this new command to identify and then fix both warnings and suggestions with the click of a button.
    • Live Share.Visual Studio Live Share is a developer service that allows you to share a codebase and its context with a teammate and get instant bidirectional collaboration directly from within Visual Studio. With Live Share, a teammate can read, navigate, edit, and debug a project that you've shared with them, and do so seamlessly and securely And with Visual Studio 2019, this service is installed by default.

    Here is the link, I think it is total worth  to upgrade. I hope it could help you.


    Best Regards

    It all depends on your use case.

    There are some handy improvements.

    I ended up removing it and went back to 2017, for two reasons:

    1. excessive reminders; "your license will expire in 5 days, your license will expire in 4 days, your license will expire in 3 days, your license will expire in 2 days, your license will expire in 1 days"! Not sure why Microsoft thinks I would appreciate these 'helpful' reminders.
    2. the debugger step icons have changed for the worse. Much worse.  It was a continuous eye sore and distraction. The whole time I was using it I was thinking to myself that apparently Microsoft employees are not using this the whole day. Icons are probably just fine when you develop screenshots for a tutorial or so, or write blog posts, or when you have bionic eyes.
