As of Test Studio R1 2023, scheduled for the end of February, the Visual Studio plugin of Test Studio will not be supported on Visual Studio 2015.

Based on customer feedback and product usage, we plan to focus our efforts on supporting modern technologies and toolsets. To ensure flawless support for the latest frameworks and Visual Studio capabilities, we will terminate support for Visual Studio 2015.

When Is this Change Going to Happen?

As of Test Studio R1 2023, scheduled for February 21st, the Visual Studio plugin of Test Studio will not be supported on Visual Studio 2015.

What Does This Mean Going Forward?

Test Studio’s Visual Studio plugin will continue supporting Visual Studio 2017, 2019, 2022, and any new version of Visual Studio that gets officially released.

Users with Visual Studio 2015 will be able to use any build released before Test Studio R1 2023 with Visual Studio 2015. Any build after R1 2023 will not support Visual Studio 2015. If you are currently using the Test Studio plugin for Visual Studio 2015 and choose not to update to a newer Test Studio release, you may continue using it.

This change is not going to affect in any way Test Studio's standalone IDE.

For more information about Test Studio's planned features, please take a look at our Roadmap page.
