Microsoft has come up with a minor update for a Node.js Tools 1.2 for Visual Studio 2015 (NTVS). This version along with other version are focused on increasing  a developer’s productivity with primary upgrades to current tools which are already existing.“The upgrade is done basically to improve stability and performance issues, reduce in out-of-memory crashes that many users are experiencing”, as stated in official blog.The upgrade is mainly focused on increasing developer’s productivity with the below advancements: - Faster, better ES6 IntelliSense - More reliable debugging - Improved Performance - Improved Unit Testing Experience1. Faster, better ES6 IntelliSenseThe experience of new ES6 IntelliSense is by default now, and better than ever. The new ES6 IntelliSense engine provides better and more performance to IntelliSense by taking advantage of type definition files. If you add a new npm package to your project, the related “typings” will be downloaded automatically to your project.2. More reliable debuggingThe cornerstone of NTVS is advanced debugging, user-reported issues are addressed and we have made it even better. So if breakpoints don’t work properly sometimes, or things were generally not consistent, be sure to download this release to get the latest fixes!3. Improved  PerformanceNo more hangs and crashes. This release implements significantly bettered stability and performance, out-of-memory crashes are reduced compared to previous versions. We’ve also made several improvements to our project system, so you can expect improved project load times (especially when “Existing Code is added”).4. Improved Unit Testing ExperiencesIn general, it is best practice to ignore writing bugs altogether, some of us are not omniscient, and find unit tests to be pretty helpful. So Microsoft has made some enhancements to the unit testing experience.
