Maintainers of this version:

This is the commercially released version of Visual Studio 2012 Professional. It uses the .NET framework version 4.5

  • Semantic Colorization: Improved syntax coloring, various user-defined or default colors for C++ syntax such as macros, enumerations, typenames, functions etc.
  • Reference Highlighting: Selection of a symbol highlights all of the references to that symbol within scope.
  • New Solution Explorer: New solution explorer allows for visualization of class and file hierarchies within a solution/project. Searching for calls to functions and uses of classes will be supported.
  • Automatic Display of IntelliSense list: IntelliSense will automatically be displayed whilst typing code, as opposed to previous versions where it had to be explicitly invoked through use of certain operators (i.e. the scope operator (::)) or shortcut keys (Ctrl-Space or Ctrl-J).
  • Member List Filtering: IntelliSense uses fuzzy logic to determine which functions/variables/types to display in the list.
  • Code Snippets: Code snippets are included in IntelliSense to automatically generate relevant code based on the user's parameters, custom code snippets can be created.

A major new feature is support for WinRT and C++/CX (Component Extensions). Support for C++ AMP (GPGPU programming) is also included.

Supported .NET Framework versions: 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5

The product was released 2012-09-12.

­­Never run wine as root (su, sudo)! Wine doesn't require to be run as root!

You will screw your WINEPREFIX and possibly other thi­ngs up. If you have run Wine as root you need to:

$ sudo rm -rf ~/.wine­

and then run winecfg to set Wine folder structure back up. If you used winetricks script as root you might also need to:

­$ sudo rm -rf ~/winetrickscache

Again: Just run wine as regular user and all should be fine.
