    Any plan to support IL development (assembly language for the CLR) in future versions of Visual Studio?

    @carlospinedag, I'm curious if you've tried the "IL Support" extension on the Visual Studio gallery? It's a third-party extension that people use to put IL directly into their VB/C# projects. Hasn't yet been updated for VS2015.

    About 5:45 into the video Habib was talking about the roadmap for WPF. As a developer who uses WPF I am very curious to read that blog post. Would someone please post a link to it here?

    20 some minutes into the presentation Hebib gave the answer to the question I asked. Here's the link:

    Here is the link for the WPF blog post:

    Even though Habib mentions that WPF is mature I hope that he still agrees that it needs some attention and some improvements now. If not he should read the comments in the blog post.

    as great as the latest news are: did you count how often you use the word "experience"? recently ms adopted a buzzword loaded language everywhere that i find hard to stand.

    @james: Well, experience is a rather important property of, well, most everything we do, including using development tools (languages, IDEs, debuggers, designers, compilers, etc...)...

    Providing developers with a great experience while coding, debugging, building, designing, etc... is sort of the whole point. Not that you'll agree, but it's probably too bad that IDE doesn't actually stand for Integrated Development Experience... because in practice it absolutely does.

    So how many of these great VS 2015 features will get relegated to Ultimate and never see the light of day in the version that people really use (just another code-lens....)?

    should add a PivotViewer and a MultiScaleImage (DeepZoom) to WPF (from Silverlight)

    there is deepzoom.codeplex.com for the later, but not sure how full it is

    Also, would love to see MMPPF (former SMF / Silverlight Media Framework) from playerframework.codeplex.com/ support WPF too (not just Windows 8)

    In fact MultiScaleImage, PivotViewer and SMF/MMPPF are the main roadblocks I'm having for porting ClipFlair Studio (ClipFlair.net) from Silverlight to WPF (one would expect the reverse way, from WPF to Silverlight to have more road blocks, but it seems Silverlight advanced in some media areas without WPF catching up)

    Sad to hear the scripting/interactive window will not be included at release.  Hopefully, will ship out-of-band soon after?!?!?

    @castibs: None of the features I showed will be pushed into higher VS SKUs. We want this to be the base line IDE experience, and it's hard to do that if we fragment the features across SKUs.

    @shaggygi: Yeah, this is a bummer. I can't speak precisely to ship dates, but we hope to ship it sometime close to RTM. It just won't be in the box.

    @james: :) The word "experience" has been over-used like crazy internally over the past year and I think we've all become indoctrinated. It's the new "super-excited". :D

    @dcampbell: Thanks for the response.  I understand as there appear to be the bigger things to do up front for the release.  If possible, can you at least offer some details on if we will see previews of the new scripting APIs and Interactive Window before VS 2015 RTM?  Thanks again.
