It also has a completely new start window and wizard for creating new projects. On top of that, it now has the ability to download and install product updates automatically, and there is a new search bar in Visual Studio, which is a key feature from where you can access other features. Solution filters are a new feature that make it easy for you to filter large solutions, so that you only see the projects that you are interested in.
