Visual Studio 2022 17.1 is now available

After releasing Preview 2 a few weeks ago, Microsoft has finally released Visual Studio 2022 17.1 today. As a powerful integrated development environment (IDE), the preview features from the previous month or so have been largely integrated into the release, and Microsoft has incorporated a lot of feedback gathered from end users.

First, with the official arrival of VS 2022 17.1, indexed lookup in files is now enabled by default for a faster search experience.

If for some reason you want to disable this feature, you can go to Tools → Options → Environment → Preview Features and deselect it.

Secondly, there is a new feature that tries to save every "dirty" document in the IDE, such as a project/solution, every time the IDE window goes out of focus.

There are also some Git enhancements, such as compare branches, checkout a commit, and review pull requests.

Developers can also get some visual information about available registers and their mapped memory locations when working with RTOS objects, as well as utilize Solution Filters.

Microsoft writes:

This feature allows developers to select the items to load to avoid loading a large amount of content each time. You can choose to load a single project, or a project with an entire dependency tree.

However, some users have noticed that the Dependency Tree / Solution Filters may expire when new items are added, or when the dependency graph changes.

For this reason, VS 2022 version 17.1 adds a simpler way to load the entire dependency tree for all items in Solution Filters.

This will introduce any new dependencies that are added to ensure that the developer has all the items they need.

You can check for any new dependencies by clicking Update Project Dependecies in the Solution Explorer context menu.

Finally, Microsoft recommends that professional and enterprise customers start looking at how they can take advantage of the new features in VS 2022 17.1, especially those in the 17.0 Long Term Support Services (LTSC) channel.

Microsoft will then focus on VS 2022 17.2, which is already in preview, and is known to include more Git enhancements, bug fixes for MAUI development, support for the new C# 11 refactoring, and related improvements when working with data locally.
