Recently, Microsoft announced the release of Preview 3  of Visual Studio 2019 v16.9. The release brings many additions and improvements to C++, IntelliSense, Address Sanitizer, and .NET Productivity.

You can now target the LLVM version of the OpenMP runtime with the new CL switch /openmp:llvm. This adds support for the lastprivate clause on #pragma omp sections and unsigned index variables in parallel for loops. 

The release brings first-class support for remote Windows development in Visual Studio CMake.

Starting with Preview 3, the IDE integration for ASan-reported exceptions(vcasan.lib) now handles the complete collection of reportable ASan exceptions. The release also adds audio cues to Test Explorer.  Users can select two different sounds. The first one is for indicating the test run succeeded with passing test results. Whle, the second one would indicate a test with at least one failure. 

The release also adds a checkbox to give you control over whether you want Visual Studio to use Windows High Contrast mode. Preview 3 also expands the MVVM Tooling for XAML. The functionality is the introduction of lightbulbs to generate commands and new view-models.
