Hello; I’m James McNellis, and I’ve recently joined the Visual C++ team as a libraries developer. My first encounter with the C++/CX language extensions was early last year, while implementing some code generation features for the Visual Studio 2012 XAML designer.

Hi, I’m Andy Rich, a tester on the C++ frontend compiler and one of the primary testers of the C++/CX language extensions. If you’re like me, making use of a technology without understanding how it works can be confusing and frustrating.
Following STL Bugs Fixed In Visual Studio 2012, here are similar lists for the compiler front-end (responsible for parsing C++)…
Using declaration for a name of a type does not work in MS C++ compilers
Support for XML Documentation in native C++ code
C++ compiler: Temporary object created when it should not,
Part 2 of my third video lecture series (covering the C++ Core Language) is now available. In this part, I took an hour to explore template argument deduction, including what “non-deduced contexts” are – and how they can be used to your advantage!
In Visual Studio 2012, one of the new features for C++ developers is the new native type visualization framework (natvis) added to the debugger which allows customizing the way data types are displayed in debugger variable windows (e. g. autos, watch,
There are several reasons to program in C++, and one of the most important ones is the incredible performance that one can obtain.
There are a set of optimizations that the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler offers to perform on your binaries to yield the best performance for your application on varying hardware (for e.g.
Back, at the end of April, we announced our first release of Casablanca as an incubation project on Devlabs. Since then, we are glad to have received a positive response from the C++ community.
Today, we are announcing a “bug-fix”
After Pat’s post last week about MFC bugs fixed in Visual Studio 2012 (aka VC11), I thought that a similar list for the STL would be interesting:
std::locale constructor modifies global locale via “setlocale()”
STL streams cannot be used concurrently
iostreams should use codepage of their imbued locales instead of the current c locale
New warning 4986 prevents clean compile at warning level 4
Implement std::max_align_t in Visual C++
Visual C++: int_fast8_t Not Always Signed
Problems constructing a bitset from an unsigned long in the VC RC
Bug in std::deque.
Hello, I’m Pat Brenner, a developer on the Visual C++ Libraries team. I recently shared some information about the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library in this blog post. Several people responded to that post asking for a list of bugs that have been fixed in MFC for Visual Studio 2012.
In case some of you missed it, Soma recently announced Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop development. This express edition will include the latest VC++ compiler and libraries, which is great for students, new developers and open source application developers.
