This release of the Teradata Developer Tools for Visual Studio focuses primarily on support for Teradata Database 16.0 and an assortment of fixes and minor improvements.
This tool will allow you to develop the SQL required for your applications without leaving the Visual Studio environment. However it should be noted that the tool is not a replacement for SQL Assistant or Teradata Studio. These other tools still have more/different functionality than the Teradata Developer Tools.
Hi Mike, trying this out, however getting an error when using the explorer tree and expanding a database:
[Teradata Database]  Column StorageFormat not found in dbc.ColumnsV.
Previously I had 15.10 extension. Now 16.00.
Connecting to TD 14.10 via 15.10 TTU.
Ignore above. After an update on Visual Studio the error went away.
