This release will be shortly followed by R Tools 1.0 for Visual Studio 2017 in early May. RTVS is a free and open source plug-in that turns Visual Studio into a powerful and productive R development environment.
The Road Ahead
We’re very excited to officially bring another language to the Visual Studio family! Along with Python Tools for Visual Studio, you have the two main languages for tackling most any ML and analytics related challenge. Very soon (~May), we’ll release RTVS for VS2017 as well. We’ll also resurrect the “Data Science workload” in VS2017 which gives you R, Python, F# and all their respective package distros in one convenient install.
