Boost Visual Studio Productivity with a Faster Parser

February 9, 2024
Visual Assist 2024.1 features an overhauled parser that makes initial startup times up to 15x quicker than previous versions.

Visual Assist by Whole Tomato Software is a productivity add-in for Visual Studio designed to improve the coding process and reduce errors. Its features include code completion, syntax highlighting, code inspections, navigation, and refactoring capabilities, which make Visual Studio more efficient for C/C++ and C# developers.

Visual Assist 2024.1 boasts a significant performance enhancement, delivering up to a 15x speedup in project startup times. This dramatic improvement is attributed to a completely revamped parser, resulting in noticeably faster initialization for projects of all sizes. For instance, an Unreal Engine project that previously took 15 minutes to load now opens in under two minutes. Whether you're working on small scripts or complex applications, Visual Assist now offers vastly more responsive coding experience.
