Release Highlights

This release of the ElectricAccelerator Visual Studio integration contains a number of new features that improve usability and performance for any ElectricAccelerator deployment in a Visual Studio environment.

  • Visual Studio IDE Integration
    • Major modernization of the ElectricAccelerator Visual Studio IDE integration, significantly enhancing configuration and usage for any developer looking to accelerate their Visual Studion based builds.
  • Toolchain Virtualization
    • The Toolchain Virtualization feature allows ElectricAccelerator to virtualize and distribute the Visual Studio toolchain from the build client, hence eliminating the need for agent-side configuration of the Visual Studio environment and dramatically simplifying initial setup of an ElectricAccelerator deployment in a Visual Studio environment.
  • Improved default settings for enhanced performance out-of the box.

This version of the the ElectricAccelerator Visual Studio Integration requires ElectricAccelerator v7.0.2 or later.
