Visual Studio now generally available with Arm64 support

The latest version of Visual Studio 2022 is now available with support for ARM64. This is the first release of Visual Studio GA to support ARM64, along with other enhancements including .NET 7 and enterprise installation support including rollback.

Until this version, Visual Studio could only run on ARM-powered devices via x64 emulation, and Microsoft advised against running Visual Studio on devices using ARM-based processors, suggesting that developers were targeting ARM devices remotely.

This release natively supports building and debugging Arm64 apps on ARM-based processors, and has enabled a range of workloads for ARM, including .NET desktop and web development, desktop and game development using C++, Universal Windows Platform development, Visual Studio extension development, and js development. This release includes native performance for the Windows SDK (Win UI 2 and UWP) and native support for the Win App SDK (Win UI 3).

Git support has been improved so that you can now undo and ignore traced Git files from both Solution Explorer and Git Changes tool windows.

This version also includes multi-repository support, which means you can have up to 10 active Git repositories at once, and work with a solution that spans more than one repository and view the history and files of several repositories at the same time. Repository health has been improved and there is a new trust dialog to make it easier to trust single and multiple Git repositories.

Developers working in Microsoft Teams can now take advantage of a new Teams Toolkit for Visual Studio that can be used to create, run, and debug apps for Microsoft Teams using .NET. This can also be used to host app projects in Azure through features that provision and deploy using an infrastructure-as-code approach with Bicep.

The new version of Visual Studio is now available.
