James-Serra, 2013-06-27

Wow, Visual Studio 2012 is just out of diapers and here comes the next version!

Microsoft officials released the preview of Visual Studio 2013 at the Microsoft Build 2013 developer conference on June 26 (along with TFS 2013).  Download here.  Meanwhile, many of the new hybrid application lifecycle management (ALM) capabilities that will be incorporated into Visual Studio 2013 were released to testers June 2, via Team Foundation Service.

Check out the links below for more info on the new features.  I will update those links as more info on the new version is released.
