Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Unity
Visual Studio 2012 Tools for Unity
Visual Studio 2013 Tools for Unity

VSTU is Microsoft’s free Visual Studio add-on that provides a programming and debugging experience for working with the Unity gaming tools and platform. This is the first release since Microsoft’s acquisition of SyntaxTree.

Visual Studio Tools for Unity 1.9 highlights include:

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.

Many more new features and bug fixes can be seen in the Visual Studio Tools for Unity 1.9  changelog.
