Visual Studio 2012 update 2 released

Visual Studio 2012 update 2 was released yesterday and it contains a variety of new features that I thought might be notable to some of you. In particular:

  • Microsoft Fakes (powerful test mocking framework) now available at the VS Premium edition level
  • Coded UI support for SharePoint 2013 applications
  • Coded UI support for IE 10
  • Various usability enhancements to Test Explorer (test playlists, organizing lists, etc)
  • Blue theme (previously available with a special extension) – this theme makes VS2012 feel slightly more like VS2010
  • New web tools including Web API and real-time communication using ASP.NET SignalR
  • A variety of improvements have been made to TFS ALM features:
    • Kanban board customizable columns
    • Work item tagging
    • Web-based access to test case management tools: users can now author, edit, and execute test cases through the web portal
