We are pleased to announce that Visual Studio 2015, and along with it Visual F# 4.0, hit RTM today! Visit the downloads page to install the release build. The F# components in VS 2015 map to commit dd8252eb8d20 in our repo.
Today marks the release of Visual Studio 2015 RC, which includes the latest updates to the Visual F# 4.0 language and tools. Download the RC here, and review the VS release notes here.
Back in November, we described the F# 4.0 features that were completed in time for the Visual Studio 2015 Preview build.
One year ago today, we pushed the button to enable community contributions and fully open engineering for Visual F#. The F# language has been open source for years, centered around the F# Open Edition and fsharp.org, but this marked the first time that Microsoft’s Visual F# tools could accept contributions and do daily development in the open.
To the Visual F# Tools development community –
Over the past months, we have made an impressive amount of progress together on F# 4.0 and the next version of the Visual F# Tools. There is still plenty of work remaining here.
Today, we are happy to announce a pre-release of F# 4.0 and the latest Visual F# Tools, for Visual Studio 2015 Preview. F# development tools are included in the box with the VS 2015 Preview download, but these bits were branched for stabilization some time ago,
