After reading the Visual Studio 2019 preview 3 release notes (which is due to be released on the 2nd of April 2019) specifically these two points:
- Sign in, browse, and one-click clone or connect to your hosted repositories from Azure DevOps through the start window.
- Install extensions for other source control hosts to view repositories owned by you and your organization.
It appears that Microsoft is no longer going to provide BitBucket integration and that developers such as Atlassian will need to write their own Visual Studio extension. Is there any plan for Atlassian to develop an extension for Visual Studio that will allow repositories to be browsed, and provide integration with JIRA to associate commits/branches with JIRA tickets etc? If there is, what is the timeline for releasing it?
