Release Notes Icon Visual Studio 2019 version 16.11.8

released December 14, 2021

Issues Addressed in this Release

Bidirectional text control character rendering

To prevent a potentially malicious exploit that allows code to be misrepresented, the Visual Studio editor will no longer allow bidirectional text control characters to manipulate the order of characters on the editing surface. A new option will cause these bidirectional text control characters to be shown with placeholders. The bidirectional text control characters will still be present in the code as this behavior only impacts what is rendered in the code editor.

VS with bidirectional text control characters replaced with placeholders

This functionality is controlled in Tools\Options. Under the Text Editor\General page there is an option for “Show bidirectional text control characters”, which will be checked by default. When checked, all bidirectional text control characters will be rendered as placeholders. Unchecking the option will revert to the previous behavior where these characters are not rendered.

A Unicode character is considered a bidirectional text control character if it falls into any of the following ranges: U+061c, U+200e-U+200f, U+202a-U+202e, U+2066-U+2069.

  • Corrected an issue in C++ compiler where a templated destructor involved in a class hierarchy with data member initializers may be instantiated too early, potentially leading to incorrect diagnostics about uses of undefined types or other errors.
  • Fixed an issue in ATL's CString comparisions under C++20 and C++Latest language modes.
  • Added Python 3.9.7 to Python workload. Removed Python 3.7.8 due to a security vulnerability.

From Developer Community

Security Advisory Notice

CVE-2021-43877 .NET Vulnerability An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in ANCM which could allow elevation of privilege when .NET core, .NET 5 and .NET 6 applications are hosted within IIS.

CVE-2021-42574 Bidirectional Text Vulnerability Bidirectional text control characters can be used to cause code to be rendered in the editor differently from what is contained on disk.

Details of What's New in this Release of Visual Studio 2019 version 16.11.0

.NET Hot Reload User Experience for editing managed code at runtime

In this release we are excited to make available the first release of the new Hot Reload user experience when editing code files for applications such as WPF, Windows Forms, ASP.NET Core, Console, etc. With Hot Reload you can now modify your apps managed source code while the application is running with no need to pause execution or use a breakpoint. Instead, simply make a supported change and use the new “apply code changes” button in the toolbar to apply them immediately.

.NET Hot Reload change is applied in VS using 'apply code changes' button

In this update of Visual Studio this new experience is available when running your application under the debugger (F5) and is powered by the Edit and Continue (EnC) mechanism. Therefore, anywhere that EnC is supported you can now also use Hot Reload alongside any other debugger features. .NET Hot Reload will also work alongside XAML Hot Reload, making it possible to make both UI and code-behind changes in your desktop applications such as WPF or WinUI.

Both EnC and Hot Reload also share the same limitations, so be aware that not every type of edit is currently supported. The complete list of what is or is not supported can be found in our documentation.

To learn more about Hot Reload and our long-term vision you can also read more details in our blog post.
