On Wednesday, Microsoft announced Visual Studio 2013, Visual Studio Online and a host of new capabilities to help development teams create, deliver and manage next-generation applications.

Also, Microsoft introduced several cloud-based services running on Windows Azure, extending development experience in the cloud. Visual Studio 2013 and Visual Studio Online represent the beginning of a new era for Visual Studio, combining a powerful desktop integrated development environment with rich developer tools and services in the cloud.

These new tools include the preview of Visual Studio Online “Monaco,” a browser-based lightweight code editing tool; a preview of Visual Studio Online Application Insights, an analytics tool providing developers visibility to the health and performance of their software; and Release Management, a service that increased DevOps functionality, including automated deployment capabilities for production use.

In the slideshow above, we highlight some new features from Visual Studio 2013, Visual Studio Online and Visual Studio Online “Monaco” that we think developer teams will want to know about.
