We are pleased to announce that a new version of Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio (SDI), version 2022.12.1368, is available for download from the Resource Center and is recommended for use by all Synergy developers. This is a quality improvement release, and as always, we encourage you to review the changes listed in the release notes.
In this release, we worked around a bug in Microsoft Visual Studio 17.3.5+ and 17.4.0+ that was causing the SDI extension to be disabled after installation. A temporary workaround has been implemented in the SDI installer that involves running the VSIX installation portion in interactive mode instead of quiet mode, so you will see the VSIX installer pop up during the SDI installation.
Additionally, this version includes a workaround for a new Microsoft issue that would prevent the go-to-definition feature from loading metadata views, and editor performance in large files with many regions has also been improved. This release also introduces anonymous diagnostic telemetry with an opt-out mechanism. There are several new compiler, project system, and build fixes included in this update as well.
The Synergy/DE tools included in this version of SDI (dbl.exe, dblproto.exe, dblibr.exe, dblink.exe, dbl2xml.exe, and rpsutl.exe) are from Synergy/DE version 18.104.22.1683.
