The final version of Update 1 for Visual Studio 2013 is now available, and the update addresses “some key areas of customer feedback” since the Visual Studio 2013 release, writes S. Somasegar, corporate vice president of the Developer Division at Microsoft.
For example, he writes, “We heard your feedback about running Visual Studio in environments without IE10+, and have made several improvements to this experience in Update 1.”
The update arrives “as we finish up a great wave of Visual Studio 2013 launch events. Two million developers watched the Visual Studio launch videos online, and tens of thousands joined in person at events around the world.” Also, Visual Studio 2013 was recognized as an InfoWorld 2014 Technology of the Year Award winner last week.

The Visual Studio 2013 team is “well underway on Update 2 now, our first major feature update, which we are looking forward to delivering this spring,” he writes.
