Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 Highlights

I finally installed Update 1 for Visual Studio, and found a feature that solves my ‘numero uno’ gripe with Visual Studio – having to use ‘Find All References’ to find the implementation for an interface.

The new feature is a menu item called ‘Go To Implementation’ – you can put your cursor into any method exposed via an interface, and instantly go to its implementation without using Ctrl K-R to find all references, and scrolling to the last item in the list.

It’s a real time-saver, especially once you assign a keyboard shortcut.

Of course, Update 1 has tons of other new features, and I’m excited about the new functionality around CPU profiling – knowing more about the internal workings of my code is always a good thing.

There’s a new version of the .NET framework (4.6.1 ), including a whole bunch of new features and bug fixes.

The full release notes can be found here, and for more info on CPU Profiling in VS 2015, go to this blog.

Merry Christmas and Happy Coding!
