Big news for developers today.

S. Somasegar, corporate vice president of the Developer Division at Microsoft, announced via a blog post this morning that Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 has shipped.

“Just as with VS2012.1 (which is installed as part of VS2012.2 for those of you who don’t already have VS2012.1 installed), this release contains important fixes as well as a wealth of new functionality, addressing feedback we’ve received from the community and aligning with key software development trends in the market. The new functionality primarily spans (though is not limited to) five areas of investment: agile planning, quality enablement, Windows Store development, line-of-business development, and the general developer experience,” Somasegar writes.

Install Update 2 today to get the latest support Visual Studio has to offer. A more expansive list of what’s new in VS2012.2, including new features and bug fixes, is also available.
