Announcing Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio (SDI) 2023.06.1295July 5, 2023
Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio (SDI) builds created after August 31 will not support Visual Studio 2019. This change will enable us to focus our resources on providing you with an optimal developer experience in Microsoft’s current and recommended platform, Visual Studio 2022. See below for more details on why we’re making this change.
We encourage you to upgrade to VS 2022 and to stay current with SDI updates. If we can assist you in moving to VS 2022, or if you have any questions about this deprecation of VS 2019, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why Synergex Is Deprecating VS 2019 in SDI
Enhanced Performance and Optimization. We’ll be able to optimize our SDI extension specifically for VS 2022 and thus take full advantage of Microsoft’s latest features and enhancements to provide you with a superior developer experience. This includes embracing VS 2022’s 64-bit architecture, which provides enhanced memory capabilities and performance advantages.
Cutting-Edge Features and Innovations. We’ll be able to leverage more advanced Visual Studio 2022-specific capabilities to create exciting new and innovative features and solutions that cater to your evolving developer needs.
Streamlined Maintenance and Support. We’ll be able to streamline our maintenance processes, resulting in quicker bug fixes, updates, and responses to your issues. Supporting multiple VS versions demands considerable time and resources, which can impede our ability to provide prompt and effective support.
Improved Stability and Reliability. VS 2022 provides significant architectural improvements over its predecessor, thus we’ll be able to ensure better stability and reliability, as well as smoother overall performance. And there will be a smaller risk of compatibility issues.
Industry Standards and Microsoft Support. Since Microsoft stopped supporting new .NET versions in VS 2019, and they’ve positioned VS 2022 as the primary development platform, it’s imperative that we align with these industry standards that they’ve established.
Encouraging Upgrades and Adoption. Microsoft Visual Studio subscription licenses include access to upgrades, incentivizing developers to update to the latest version. By exclusively supporting VS 2022, we’ll encourage our users to upgrade, ensuring they can take full advantage of Visual Studio’s and SDI’s latest features and improvements.
