  • No mention here of whether VS2019 will be C++ binary compatible with VS2017, like VS2017 was with VS2015?

  • Thanks for asking. We will have more details on this once Preview 2 will be out soon, but the short answer is that, yes, the upcoming MSVC toolset will be binary compatible with the previous two releases.

  • From the article:

    'Another visible change is the top-level menu, which has been moved up into the title bar, reclaiming vertical space to make room for more code in your editor. This change optimizes available space without changing how you navigate the IDE'

    There has been a lot of feedback about developers not wanting this - or at the very least being able to opt out of having this feature as the title bar is important to us.

    It doesn't feel like developers are being listened to.

  • Is Visual Studio 2019 a 64-bit application or still a 32-bit application like it has been for decades?

    If you think development is tough now, think how hard it was using punched cards :-)
