Highlights of the Visual Studio Tools for Unity 1.9 release include:
- Faster debugger: Attaching and detaching the debugger as well as expanding local variables is now faster.
- Faster startup: Quite simply opening VSTU projects is now faster.
- Better handling of C# constructs: The local variables window is now properly populated when debugging iterators or when variables are accessed inside closures.
- Start a game and a debugging session in one click: Microsoft says this feature is one of their most-requested: now attach the debugger and start the game by simply changing the debug target. This is only available in Visual Studio 2012 and 2013.
