To see the announcement for Visual Studio 2013 as featured in Visual Studio Magazine when it was launched.
In summary these included:
- Prototyping and Throw-Away Applications: “A throw away Application is defined as a prototype developed as part of a throw-away approach that will not form part of the final solution. It can define the final solution, but that is all. Throw-away prototypes are a useful way of exploring ideas and gaining feedback from the client and/or end-user. They tend to be used to answer questions, they are then discarded.”
- Peek Definitions.
- Improved Navigation and Search.
- CodeLens: (CodeLens is a feature that comes available in Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise edition ).
- Scroll Bar Customization.
- Minor Tweaks: Including for those that code from multiple machines, the new synchronization features can be of great benefit. If you choose to sign in with your Microsoft account when using Visual Studio, and you sign in from multiple computers, your environment settings — like keyboard shortcuts and theme — will be synchronized between instances automatically.
