Finalist: Visual Studio 2013 Update 4
Since Microsoft released Visual Studio 2013, it has shipped four important updates, all of them released in 2014. This quarterly enhancement is an entirely new timetable for Microsoft and a praiseworthy advance in its new collaboration with developers.
The updates brought many improvements that fixed bugs and included important new features, ranging from Intel AVX2 code generation to a new JSON editor to the ability to collect and analyze GPU usage data for Windows applications.
Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 provides an especially good experience when working with high-DPI screens.
These benefits are in addition to the support for popular development stacks and frameworks, such as Apache Cordova, Node.js, and Python, which makes Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 a powerful environment even when you're not working with classic Microsoft stacks.
