What’s New in this Release

Data Science and Analytical Applications Workload

The Data science and analytical applications workload provides a one-click install of all your data analysis needs. It includes support for Python, R, F#, and their respective packages/distros to enable acquisition, analysis, and visualization of data all the way through to building and deploying machine learning models.

TypeScript Side-by-Side Support

Multiple versions of the TypeScript compiler may now be used in Visual Studio 2017. During installation, TypeScript 2.2 will be automatically included with the Web, Node.js, Universal Windows, or Mobile JavaScript workloads. TypeScript 2.1 may also be selected from the ‘Individual Components’ installer page.

By default, the version of TypeScript used by IntelliSense and by the build will be the latest installed. To change the version used by IntelliSense, use the “Tools / Options / Text Editor / JavaScript/TypeScript / IntelliSense” setting shown below. To change the TypeScript version used for building a project, set the MSBuild property <TypeScriptToolsVersions> in the project file (see the TypeScript Handbook for more info on MSBuild properties).

    Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?

  11. Hi there would you mind stating which blog
    platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my
    own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  12. One more issue is that video gaming became one of the all-time greatest forms of recreation for people of any age. Kids have fun with video games, and also adults do, too. The actual XBox 360 is probably the favorite video games systems for those who love to have a huge variety of games available to them, plus who like to relax and play live with other folks all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your thinking.

  13. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
    in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility
    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great
    though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

  14. Thanks for your post made here. One thing I would really like to say is most professional fields consider the Bachelors Degree just as the entry level standard for an online degree. Whilst Associate College diplomas are a great way to get started on, completing a person’s Bachelors presents you with many opportunities to various careers, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Diploma Programs available via institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions make available Online variants of their qualifications but commonly for a drastically higher cost than the institutions that specialize in online college degree programs.

  15. I have observed that in the world nowadays, video games are classified as the latest rage with children of all ages. Often times it may be out of the question to drag your family away from the activities. If you want the best of both worlds, there are lots of educational video games for kids. Great post.
