AWS Toolkit support for Visual Studio Community 2013

We often hear from our customers that they would like our AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio to work with the Express editions of Visual Studio. We understand how desirable this is, but due to restrictions built into the Express editions of Visual Studio, it hasn’t been possible…until now.

With the recent announcement of the new Visual Studio Community 2013 edition, it is now possible to get the full functionality of our AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio inside a free edition of Visual Studio. This includes the AWS Explorer for managing resources, Web Application deployment from the Solution Explorer, and the AWS CloudFormation editor for authoring and deploying your CloudFormation templates.

So if you haven’t tried the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio, now is a great time to check it out.
