Originally posted to Chuck Walbourn's Blog on MSDN,

An update for Visual Studio 2013 is available for download.

For more details see Visual Studio Team Blog, Brian Harry’s blog, and Somasegar’s blog.

Official KB article 2994375. This includes the official release of a number of fixes from the CTP.

Compiler and CRT

VS 2013 Update 4 includes a new version of the C++ compiler (18.00.31101.0). There’s no new C/C++ Runtime–it still uses CRT version 12.0.21005.1 from VS 2013 RTM–, but there are updated remote debugging tools packages.

Visual Studio Graphics Diagnostics: This update includes a new GPU usage tool. Note that this tool is included with VS 2013 Express for Windows, VS 2013 Community, and VS 2013 Pro+.

Community Edition: There is now a new Visual Studio Community 2013 Edition for individuals, students, and hobbyists who want to target multiple platforms, use VS extensibility, and the graphics debugger.
