The GitHub Extension for Visual Studio now supports Visual Studio 2017 RC, including support for cloning repositories directly from the Visual Studio Start Page. We’ve also improved our startup time to get you productive as fast as possible.

This release, version 2.1.1.0, is available as an optional installation component in the installer for both Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Studio 2017 RC. You can also install it directly from the Visual Studio gallery or download it from visualstudio.github.com.

Last year we introduced the GitHub Extension for Visual Studio as an open source project under the MIT license. You can log issues and contribute to the extension in the repository.
