Version 16.11 will be the final version of Visual Studio 2019 and receive support through April 2029. Additionally, the final release of 16.11 will be a servicing baseline. So, it will start the 12-month support clock for the prior baseline – version 16.9. We offer fixes for servicing baselines for 12 months after the next baseline is declared. This differs from minor version releases, like 16.10, which only receive servicing fixes until the next minor update is released. Organizations can choose when to adopt the new features that ship in minor version updates with servicing baselines.

It’s a good time for developers, administrators, and DevOps managers to review their current version usage. Version 16.4 will go out of support in October. Administrators should plan for migration and consider testing the final release of Visual Studio 2019. You can install preview versions of Visual Studio side-by-side with the Release Channel!

Thank you for participating in our previews and helping us make Visual Studio the best developer experience. We hope you will try the preview, give us feedback on Developer Community, and report any problems you encounter.
