Visual Studio 2017, Now Available for Download



Today, Microsoft is making Visual Studio 2017 generally available for download. If you want to try out the updated development platform, you can find the application, here.
For those who have Visual Studio 2015 installed, Microsoft says that you can install 2017 alongside the older application. Additionally, you can install Visual Studio 2017 on top of Visual Studio "15" preview and 2017 RC.
Along with releasing the new version of the platform, the company is hosting a two-day online event to celebrate the anniversary of Visual Studio which has been around for twenty years. The event offers interactive technical demos of the new features and will help users get up to speed on all the enhancements of the platform.
Visual Studio 97, which was announced on January 28th, 1997, has grown from an IDE to a suit of services that now includes Visual Studio Team Services, Visual Studio Code, and many others. Microsoft positions this suite of tools as the premier environment for developing applications and has done a substantial amount of work to make it cross platform as well as a viable tool for building applications for any operating system.
Because Visual Studio can be prohibitive to new coders as the cost to utilize the entire application is quite high, the company has been working the past few years to bring this development platform to all coders with new applications like Visual Studio Code and also reduced pricing for the education markets.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
