Last year, Microsoft released Visual Studio for Mac, a fully featured IDE for Mac developers to create mobile and cloud applications. Based on the feedback from developers, Microsoft has brought several new features like web editor, improved .Net Core and ASP .Net support and more. Read about them below.

Visual Studio for Mac now includes rich HTML, CSS and JSON editors to macOS. Developer can enjoy the same code completion, indentation behavior, and validation that they get on Windows for those file formats. They have improved the .NET Core and ASP.NET Core support to make it even simpler to create server code, either for standalone web sites, or as a service backend for mobile applications or hosted services. Also, developers can now publish their applications directly to Azure from Visual Studio for Mac.

Visual Studio for Mac now comes with support for C# 7.0. Microsoft has improved its accessibility support by integrating it with Apple’s macOS accessibility platform.
