Also present here is a news feed with new information for developers.
Languages and developer types supported in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac

Mac users can also rely on the same engines for debugging Xamarin and .NET Core apps, as well as identical designers for Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android.
Source code management in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac with Git
Visual Studio 2017 for Mac offers two systems for source code management: In addition to Subversion, this is primarily Git, the freely usable Standard has been integrated into this program version, which also allows multiple developers of a team to work on projects simultaneously. Repositories can be managed in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac directly via buttons integrated into the IDE, allowing code to be transferred and published for a Git service. New Push and Commit features, as well as SSH support, expand the ability to use Visual Studio 2017 for Mac for Git tasks in the IDE.
Everything in view with CodeLens in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Professional
The CodeLens feature is specifically designed to allow developers to instantly keep track of everything at any point in a project, even without having to leave the code to do so. With CodeLens, they can easily navigate directly to individual functions. In addition, CodeLens not only displays all changes to the code in the editor, but also names the last developer who adjusted something and also indicates whether a test was passed at a certain point.
New refactoring capabilities in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac
Refactoring is one of the Standard tasks when developing code to improve it after the fact without changing its behavior. Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Professional offers context actions and source analysis as well as other refactorings, such as overriding, adding parameters (e.g. NULL checks) and arguments.Likewise, literals can now be edited, firstly by inserting digit separators and, especially for numeric literals, also by changing the base from "hexadecimal" to "binary". In addition, Visual Studio 2017 for Mac provides the option of converting if-statements to switch-statements and removing unused variables.
Debugging in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac - with a focus on Xamarin
Visual Studio for Mac 2017 uses Mono's soft debugger for debugging, this is integrated into the Mono runtime to debug code managed on all platforms. Furthermore, the software has a native debugger for Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Mac and Xamarin.Android-based apps. Included for this purpose are extensive quick views for special types, such as sizes, coordinates and Bézier curves, as well as strings, colors and URLs.
Specifically for Xamarin applications, Visual Studio 2017 for Mac features the Xamarin Forms Previewer, which allows developers to instantly preview the impact of a line of code on an application in a live preview. Also included for Xamarin Forms are enhancements to IntelliSense for XAML, including support for bindings, converters, as well as properties, controls, and more.
Instant control with IntelliSense in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac
The IntelliSense feature automatically completes APIs as they are typed via available IntelliSense completion lists, which provides the benefit of making developer processes not only faster, but also more accurate. IntelliSense also allows APIs to be analyzed more quickly in general by allowing the set of values to be narrowed down using categories. To this end, the tooltips make it easier to examine API definitions, indicating problems as they are entered and marking the appropriate places with a wavy line.
Other benefits of IntelliSense include filters to remove certain unneeded members from the completion list. Specifically, IntelliSense completion lists for C# have tokens such as "complete word" or "list member" and also provide quick access to, among other things, members of a particular type, code snippets, and the names of variables, functions and commands.
