Clang/LLVM Support for MSBuild Projects

Shikha Kaul

Visual Studio 2019 version 16.2 Preview 3 includes built-in Clang/LLVM support for MSBuild projects. In our last release, we announced support for Clang/LLVM for CMake. In the latest Preview of Visual Studio, we have extended that support to also include MSBuild projects. While in most cases we recommend using the MSVC compiler, we are committed to making Visual Studio one of the most comprehensive IDEs on Windows. You may want to use Clang instead if you are developing cross platform code, especially if it already depends on Clang or GCC extensions. You can now use Clang/LLVM to target both Windows and Linux using MSBuild just like you can with CMake projects. We’ve also updated our included version of Clang to 8.0.0. Please download the latest Preview to try it out and let us know how it works.
