Microsoft today released the second preview for Visual Studio “15” Preview. The company recently released Preview 1, and the latest preview introduces some small new features and bug fixes. With the latest update, Microsoft is making the account settings dialog more accessible to users who use screen readers, and also some other improvements:
This preview like the previous one, lays groundwork for the next version of Visual Studio. We primarily focused on bug fixes and a few feature updates. New features include; making the account settings dialog more accessible to screen readers, diagnostics improvements to help track down focus related issues, Edit and Continue for XAML apps, and simplified debug configuration in Folder view. Preview 2 also includes the latest Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova Update 9 which supports Cordova 6.1.1.
As Microsoft stated, the new Preview is for the next version of Visual Studio which will get released in the coming months. If you use Visual Studio, you can checkout what’s new in the latest preview here, and find the known issues here. As this is a preview release, bugs and rough edges are expected as usual.

Editor’s note: The article previously stated that the latest preview is for Visual Studio 2015. However, that is incorrect — the preview is for Visual Studio “15” which will be the next version of Visual Studio.
