“SoftFluent’s customers built their applications using CodeFluent Entities and its Microsoft Visual Studio integrated graphical editor. We have had consistent positive feedback about this edition, and we think that these new features address developers’ need and really help them to improve productivity. As always, some customers are slower to upgrade depending on their corporate policies, and though our product works great with former versions of Visual Studio, we encourage developers to move to the latest version to benefit from these new features.”
Greg Lutz, product manager at ComponentOne
“As a third-party control vendor, when Microsoft released Visual Studio 2013, we [simultaneously] shipped our products with it to take advantage of the enhancements. One example is our XAML product offering. Specifically, closing tags that automatically change to reflect the opening tag, the ‘Go to definition’ feature, as well as the ability to edit control templates, make XAML development a little easier.
“Microsoft also added new Project Templates in Visual Studio 2013 that use a theming framework called Bootstrap. We have enhanced our support for developers working in Visual Studio 2013 by officially supporting Bootstrap in Studio Enterprise 2013 v3. By designing our controls to integrate seamlessly with Bootstrap, Visual Studio 2013 clients have a vast amount of tools available for building their Web applications.
“The improvements our customers notice most in Visual Studio 2013 are to the code editors. Aside from the style of the shell changing, this release has probably the most visual new enhancements to the code editors in a long time. A new visual feature for tracking your references in code is CodeLens. It allows you to view all of the references to a class or variable and quickly navigate to them. The enhanced visual features in the new scroll bar have been remarked on as being very useful when you are working with a larger code file.”#!AccuRev: The AccuRev application life-cycle solution allows software teams to deliver higher-quality software with more functionality faster so they can stay competitive and keep pace with customer demands.
