From the release notes, some improvement in this version are:

  1. The very first launch of Visual Studio is 30-35% faster
  2. The version control status bar makes it easier to publish local repos to an SCC host and keep track of uncommitted and un-pushed work.

  3. New Visual Studio “15” Feature: Open Folder

    Open Folder is a convenient way to navigate code bases without projects and solutions. The Solution Explorer has a new button to switch between Solution and Folder views. If MSBuild-based projects exist in the folder, the editor will provide IntelliSense for C# or Visual Basic files, and you can build or debug by using F5 and the file context menu in the Solution Explorer. Python and Node.js scripts can also be debugged after the respective Visual Studio tools are installed. Version control operations are available in the Solution Explorer for folders under Git version control.

  4. Xamarin update to Xamarin 4.1, In addition to a number of bug fixes, this release adds support for tvOS, improves the iOS Assets Catalog support, improves the XML editing experience, and adds selectors for SSL/TLS and HttpClient implementations when creating iOS apps. For more information
