Microsoft today has officially announced and released a first preview for Visual Studio for Mac and a close to complete release candidate of Visual Studio 2017 for Windows. Visual Studio for Mac is not necessarily a new product, but rather a rebranded edition of the Xamarin Studio integrated development environment specifically designed to work on the Mac. Microsoft accidentally “outed” its Mac product 2 days ago when it accidentally pre-posted the announcement. Microsoft acquired Xamarin in February of 2016.
