Support for latest version of Visual Studio, and to be honest VS Code should be a day 1 release in SDK. Either that or remove need for code by massively extending no code capabilities.  Would prefer latter but until then do former.

@Pawel, don't disagree that it has been greatly under resourced by Microsoft - but that doesn't mean they shouldn't have an out of box developer tooling capability - it means they should re-enforce their efforts to put a more current, better quality, and higher value tool out.  Those can always be supplemented by the community but simply providing no tooling or old out of date tooling is not good.  If they aren't going to keep it updated they should stop publishing it

-1 from me. There are many better tools for D365 developement than Developer Toolkit. It was dead for many years and it should stay dead. Simply use open source tools or powershell scripts to automate the work. I saw too many projects totally damaged by using Developer Toolkit, so I will never regret it being to supported in the new release of VS.

I demonstrated the Developer Toolkit at a recent CRM User Group meeting in the UK. #1 question afterwards - does it support VS2017.

It makes no sense for this tool not to be available for VS2017 if Microsoft are going to continue developing the toolkit.

The fact that the toolkit has not had as much attention as it deserves is not a reason to downvote this idea, IMO.

By the time this discussion is over, the tool will require support for VS 2019 which, incidentally, just entered beta.
