...debug using Visual Studio anywhere you can use GDB or LLDB.
The news coming out of the Microsoft Build event keeps flowing.
As well as the news that Microsoft are releasing the cross-platform Visual Studio Code for when you "don't need a full IDE" (but something that does give you intelligent code editing and debugging) comes the news that they've extended Visual Studio's debugging capabilities. In a way, it's almost not surprising, since they've extended VS to be able to develop for multiple non-Windows targets (such as Android and iOS) leveraging Clang. But they've extended the debugging capabilities so you can now do things like debug a linux executable remotely through Visual Studio, via GDB or LLDB.
The source for this debug engine will be released under the MIT license on github before the final Visual Studio release later this year.
