Visual Studio is a complete set of development tools for building ASP.NET Web applications, XML Web Services, desktop applications, and mobile applications. Visual Basic, Visual C#, and Visual C++ all use the same integrated development environment (IDE), which enables tool sharing and eases the creation of mixed-language solutions. In addition, these languages use the functionality of the .NET Framework, which provides access to key technologies that simplify the development of ASP Web applications and XML Web Services.
This update is the latest in a cumulative series of feature additions and bug fixes for Visual Studio 2013. Periodic updates enable Microsoft to enhance and expand Visual Studio more frequently to support the latest software development innovations for building and managing modern apps.
