Visual Studio 2013 Update 5 CTP 3 Now Available For Download

Quite a mouthful as far software names go, but Windows 10 developers among you will be interested in the fact that Visual Studio 2013 Update 5 CTP 3 has just been released.

This follows another release in late February.

But Microsoft have shifted to a faster release cadence for its software solutions, and the Visual Studio team in particular has been releasing these technical preview builds at a rapid pace. This one is for an earlier version, though, not the upcoming Visual Studio 2015.

And as the release notes explain, most of the changes in this release are actually bug fixes:

“This update is the latest in a cumulative series of technology improvements and bug fixes for Visual Studio 2013. Periodic updates enable us to enhance and expand Visual Studio more frequently to support the latest software development innovations for building and managing modern apps.”

Do keep in mind that this is still prerelease software, and not actually meant for deployment on production machines — users may encounter unknown bugs or issues.

With that said, the link is available below.

  1. I am impressed when companies bring new released software to the market faster each time. On the other hand, if it is full of bugs, what is the point of rushing?
