Visual Studio “15” Preview 4

John Montgomery. Visual Studio Blog. 2016-08-22.
Today we released Visual Studio “15” Preview 4, introducing many new improvements and bug fixes that bring us one stage closer to the product’s completion.
The highlight of this release is that nearly all of VS is running on the new setup engine, resulting in a smaller, faster and less impactful installation. The smallest install is less than 500 MB on disk (compared to 6GB in the previous release of Visual Studio). There are a couple of “workloads” that aren’t present yet, including .NET Core tooling and Azure tooling, but the rest of the existing VS 2015 feature set is available.
