VS 2015 support for Thunder

  • VS 2015 support for Thunder
  • Any ideas when Thunder will be available in VS 2015?
  • Hi,

    Visual Studio 2015 has not been tested and supported yet. Supported Sitefinity Visual Studio versions are Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013 as listed in the following article of our documentation.

    I am afraid that I am not able to provide a exact Sitefinity release version which will include support for Visual Studio 2015 and when Thunder will be available.

    Excuse us for the inconvenience.

  • I really miss Thunder.  Too bad it doesn't support VS 2015 yet.
  • Does anyone know if just adding VS 2015 to the list of <SupportedProducts> in the vsizmanifest file will do the trick?  Is it that simple?
  • I renamed the vsix file to zip.  Added 14 to the manifest, renamed it back to vsix and it installed.  VS 2015 errored once when it loaded but things seemed to work.  I uninstalled for now.  I'll wait for a real build rather than a hacked vsix.  It seems like if I had the source code, everyone wouldn't be waiting months for 2015 Thunder extension.
     
  • I must admit this is starting to be annoying now as I want to uninstall VS 2013 and just work with VS 2015.

  • Echoing the sentiment - for an enterprise solution, the lack of parity with developer tools such as VS2015 is disappointing and frustrating.
  • Are you saying that you're using VS2015 with Sitefinity projects w/o any problems (obviously w/o thunder)?  If so can I ask what versions of Sitefinity have worked?  All my projects are still 7.3

     

    I have to agree though, it's frustrating to be stuck on old versions of VS

  •  Hi.  Can you please give us some kind of indication on a timeline?  I am not asking for something hard and fast, but just an indicator.  Your previous response does not even indicate that you are working on it at all.

  • I don't believe that VS2015 is supported at all yet - regardless of Thunder.

    I discovered this when a project failed to build (for debug purposes) and the advice from tech support was to install VS2013

  • Ugh. That's terrible.
    Come on Sitefinity. Let us know what the status and future is here.
  • Hi all,

    Based on popular request, we started work on providing VS 2015 support.
    Our plans are to deliver it that in the coming Sitefinity 8.2 release (to be released around 22 October).

    Stay tuned.

  • Yay!  Sounds like a good time to move to 8.x!
  • That's great news to finally hear.

    Will this also include updating Thunder?
