What is currently the best/safest Visual Studio version to build plugins (32/64 bit) with? 2008 or something newer?
I compile mine using VS2013 and have no complaints. Though I had to be careful to maintain XP support. There's a toolset option in the introjucer.
The latest code I'm doing is with the 'not-recommended for production code' CTP_Nov2013 compiler. Though haven't spotted any problems with it yet that affect what I'm doing.
I have built one freebie with 2013 as well. With no serious complains. But I am not sure if it is ready for serious business production. I read some complains about 2013 at KVR Developer Forum a while ago. So I was wondering if something has change since.
