Visual Studio 2022's first preview focused on 64-bit functionality testing. The new Preview 2 focuses on improving the nuts and bolts of debugging, including improved Live Preview, Hot Reload, and Force Run.
You are the heart of all our product development. Whether you participated in a customer survey, posted on Developer Community, or filled out a survey, we appreciate your input. We also thank you for continuing to guide Visual Studio's product roadmap. The first preview of Visual Studio 2022 will go live this summer. This is exciting news.
Visual Studio's next major release will be lighter, faster, and easier to use. It is intended for both industrial-scale solutions and learners—visual Studio 64-bit for the first time. Visual Studio will be more intuitive, intelligent, and action-oriented.
The geographical spread of development teams has increased. Over the past year, it has become clear that organizations require their development teams to work securely together, deliver solutions faster, and improve end-user satisfaction. With better integration with GitHub, it's easier to collaborate and make it easy to move from code to cloud.
Visual Studio 2022 has 64-bit support:
Visual Studio 2022 will now be a 64-bit program. This means that Visual Studio 2022 is no longer limited by the main devenv.exe process to 4GB of memory. You can open, edit and run 64-bit Visual Studio on Windows.
Visual Studio will be 64-bit, but this does not affect the type or bitness of applications you create with Visual Studio. Visual Studio will still be an excellent tool for building 32-bit applications.
It's very satisfying to see Visual Studio scale up to make use of the 64-bit memory available. This video shows Visual Studio opening a solution with 1,600 files and 300k projects. We can all agree that there will be no more out-of-memory exceptions.

Hot Reload (for both .NET and C++ code) makes it possible to make many types of code edits to your running app and apply them without needing to pause the app's execution with something like a breakpoint. In this release, we continue to improve this feature; highlights include Support for C++, .NET Hot Reload when running without debugger (CTRL-F5), support for more types of edits, and more.
We have revamped the “Trust Settings” functionality and can now show a warning whenever untrusted code (e.g., files, projects, or folders) is about to be opened inside the IDE.
XAML Live Preview
XAML Live Preview is now available for WPF developers as the first preview of this new experience. With Live Preview, we enable the ability to capture a desktop app's UI and bring it into a docked window within Visual Studio, making it easier to use XAML Hot Reload to change the app and easily see the changes as you make them. This feature improves the XAML Hot Reload experience on a single screen device while also making it possible to polish the app's UI with deep zooming, rulers, element selection, and info tips.
Very early experimental preview of enabling running tests on remote environments such as Linux containers, WSL, and over SSH connections.
The default icons have been updated and refreshed.
Azure Cloud Services
Azure Cloud Service (classic) and Azure Cloud Service (extended support) projects are now supported.
