Microsoft has produced an updated roadmap for Visual Studio with details of what's planned up till June 2020. The team says it captures significant capabilities that they plan to add, but it’s not a comprehensive feature list.
The aim of publishing the roadmap is to clarify what’s coming so developers can plan for upgrades and provide feedback on which features they feel would make Visual Studio a more productive development environment.
Elsewhere on the roadmap, the developers say they've worked on top user requests so that documents and tool windows pinned in the document well are remembered between sessions; open documents in a project are grouped in vertical tabs; and a button has been added to refresh search results and references windows.
A number of improvements have been made to ensure conformance to C++ 20, targeting of Unix-like systems from Visual Studio with C++ has been improved, and it's now easier to carry out CMake development with Visual Studio.
