Visual Studio 15 Preview Comes with Salsa
The issue seems to be even more evident when running long code, which can tend to time out the execution engine as it encountered nested loops or http requests, notes Kelly.
That's where Salsa comes in, which Kelly says uses " the same static analysis that provides type inference in TypeScript."
Kelly notes in his blog that Salsa needs to be enabled, since it's not available by default. As Salsa gets more refined, he said to expect an improved automatic type acquisition feature, as well as support for @constructor and @typedef in the JSDoc specs. And of course, the team is always looking for participation and feedback.
Salsa is available in the Visual Studio 15 Preview here.
