[EN] Visual Studio 2013 Update 3RC/RTM is available.

Captura_VS2013up3_02Even I’m not a developer (and probably never will be) but some dev tools are interesting – and sometimes necessary – even for me. Visual Studio is one of them especially for SharePoint and Azure areas. RC (Release Candidate) version of this update has been annouced on July 2nd. One month later – two days ago – RTM (Release To Manufacture) solid version has been published.
