Today, we are happy to announce the release of Visual Studio 2015 Update 2. This release focuses on stability and on responding to the feedback we’ve received on RTM and Update 1.

...

C++ Compiler

In this release, we've updated the C++ compiler and standard library with enhanced support for C++11 and C++14 features, as well as preliminary support for certain features expected to be in the C++17 standard. The most notable compiler changes are support for Variable Templates and constexpr improvements.

Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 allows using /SDL with /AWAIT. We also removed /RTC limitation with Coroutines. Coroutines still are experimental, but ready for quality production code now.

Additionally, we've fixed more than 300 compiler bugs, including many submitted by customers through  Microsoft Connect — thank you!

...

C++ IDE

The new SQLite-based database engine is now being used by default. This will speed up database operations like Go To Definitions and Find All References, and will significantly improve initial solution parse time. The setting has been moved to Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced (it was formerly under ...C/C++ -> Experimental).

Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable installs run-time components of Visual C++ libraries. These components are required to run C++ applications that are developed using Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 and link dynamically to Visual C++ libraries. The packages can be used to run such applications on a computer even if it does not have Visual Studio 2015 installed. These packages also install run-time components of C Runtime (CRT), Standard C++, MFC, C++ AMP, and OpenMP libraries. Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable includes bug fixes to the runtime DLLs and also the latest versions for KB 2999226 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2999226). To find out what's new in Visual Studio 2015 Update 2, see the Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 Release Notes (http://www.visualstudio.com/news/vs2015-update2-vs).
