Dear Support,

in newest Visual Studio you write about multiple fixes. Need more details about thoes to check if our products had an issue that this Version of Visual Studio will fix it.
Please give detailed infos or Bug lists, otherwise that Agile distribution of Visual Studio will create too much work on all development centers.

Best regards, K.

    Hello @Jonaszko, Krzysztof ,

    Thank you for taking time to post this issue in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Is there a buglist?

    Actually, the buglist is listed on the Visual Studio Release Notes web page, as Leon mentioned above. But, I knew that you’d like to get more detailed information about the buglist, which as you mentioned like the blog that posted by some teams.

    The Release Rhythm, indeed, has pointed out that “Noteworthy updates will be announced through the Visual Studio blog. All minor updates are accompanied by release notes.” So you see some notes, like “Fixed for optimization bug in loops”.

    It is recommended to directly report this issue to Visual Studio Product Team and ask for detailed information in Developer Community. Also, I suggest you can describe your requirements and start a new thread in GitHub MicrosoftDocs (visualstudio-docs).

    I hope this could help you a little.

    Sincerely,
    Tianyu

    Hi @Jonaszko, Krzysztof ,

    As far as I know Microsoft does not reveal the exact bugs that are fixed, they only reveal on a high-level, this can be seen here:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/releases/2019/release-notes#16.8.2

    You may submit feedback about your query through the Report a Problem option in the upper right-hand corner of either the installer or the Visual Studio IDE itself, or by asking in the dedicated Visual Studio community over here:
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/spaces/8/index.html

    Best regards,
    Leon

    Hallo Leon,

    there are maybe reason for it, but in my Test Driven Developement Prozess I see differences in Unit Test results (without changing the code on my side) I need to understand what happening. Last months we get updates each 2 weeks, but its not my weather app. Its Developement Tool for team. If we update it on all PC we need to ensure not only that they can work, but also that their code generates expected results.

    By release of Visual Studio 16.8.0 and many others you linked detailed list of few issues with links. (Example https://devblogs.microsoft.com/cppblog/c-coroutines-in-visual-studio-2019-version-16-8/)
    Now with 16.8.2 I just see the line like "Fixed for optimization bug in loops." I just don't know on what base I can say my team, yeah take new Visual Studio its great. It fixes few bugs!

    Best regards,
    Krzysztof
