App Center Team

Today we have released the first preview of our next update to Visual Studio 2017. You will see a notification in Visual Studio within the next few days, or you can download the new installer from

In this post, we’re going to look at some of the new features we have added for Python developers. As always, the preview is a way for us to get features into your hands early, so you can provide feedback and we can identify issues with a smaller audience. If you encounter any trouble, please use the Report a Problem tool to let us know.

The two major new features are a preview of the ptvsd 4.0 debugger, and IntelliSense for type hints.
