Code Your Way - With two new themes, customizing your IDE to match your coding style has never been easier.

  • Dark and Light Themes  - Dark themes have been reported to reduce eye strain in low light environments, allowing you to work more productively at night. It’s easy to toggle between dark and light themes via a toolbar menu.
  • Customize Your Development Environment  - The improved installer UI and license manager UI help you identify the options you need and skip what you don’t, whether you’re developing for multiple platforms or just one.
  • Clean, Updated IDE UI - Find the options you need, fast. The IDE’s main window is more readable and aligned. Easily tell where the keyboard focus area is with updated changes to focus background colors. Editor tabs are larger with easier to read fonts, so you can quickly make changes and keep coding.

  • Per Monitor V2 Support - Ensure your app scales correctly for all Windows scaling, by responding to DPI scaling changes on different screens at runtime.
