CodeStream 8.2 - In-IDE code reviews for Visual Studio

In addition to our support for Visual Studio Code and the JetBrains family of editors, CodeStream’s in-IDE code reviews are now available for Visual Studio 2017 or later.  

This release also includes performance improvements that make the CodeStream integration faster and more responsive. We know that many extensions can really bog down your Visual Studio experience so we went out of our way to make sure that the CodeStream extension is as non-invasive as possible with regard to your system resources. 


The ability to request and perform code reviews in Visual Studio allows you to speed up your .NET development process. 

  • Use jump-to-definition, your favorite keybindings, and other IDE tools while conducting a review
  • Request feedback on work in progress, including code that hasn’t yet been pushed or even committed
  • Request and perform code reviews without switching tools or breaking flow

By having teammates look over code earlier in the cycle, even if the code hasn’t been compiled, you can catch problems sooner and improve code quality at the same time. Because review cycles are shorter and faster, they are easier on the reviewer, who does not have to set aside big blocks of time to address a pending request for review.
