When I joined Microsoft just about 3 years ago I just missed the prior release of Visual Studio 2019 and all the prep work that goes into it. Any who I am really excited for all our work and am excited to shared the official release of Visual Studio 2022 on November 8. As with previous releases there is both a Release Candidate (RC) and a Preview 5 to decide between.
For those of you who are interested in continuing to test and provide feedback for the latest changes then I suggest continuing with Preview 5. However, if you want fewer updates, more stability, then I suggest the Release Candidate (RC) which will update to the General Availability (GA) release. Both RC ad GA have go-live licenses and can be used to create production ready applications.
Our online launch event kicks off at 8:30 AM Pacific Time on November 8 with a keynote hosted by Scott Hanselman and Amanda Silver (I play a small 2 minute role). There are breakout sessions and a whole bunch of Tips and Tricks talks focusing on the newest and best capabilities of Visual Studio that align with your dev work.
