Visual Studio 2022 for Mac Release Candidate 2

Jordan Matthiesen

Visual Studio 2022 for Mac 17.0 Release Candidate 2 is now available! In this release, we’ve focused on addressing top reported issues from the first release candidate. This work builds on top of earlier previews where we’ve moved the UI of the IDE to fully native macOS UI and migrated the IDE to run on top of .NET 6 (enabling native support of Apple’s M1 (arm64) processor). Get the latest release now by using the Visual Studio > Check for Updates… menu in Visual Studio for Mac, or download it directly:
