This current update brings in the following improvements, as per the official blog.
  • Workload Updates
  • .NET Core graduated from being a Preview workload to a standard part of the “ASP.NET and web development” workload
  • If you only want to build .NET Core apps, there is a dedicated “.NET Core cross-platform development” workload available in the “Other Toolsets” category of the Visual Studio Installer.
  • The capability to open existing MVC4 projects is now available as an optional component for the “ASP.NET and web development” workload. If you do not choose it during installation, you will be prompted to install it when you open an MVC4 project.
  • You can now remote debug .NET Core apps running on Linux over SSH from Visual Studio using the "Attach to Process" dialog.
  • When debugging JavaScript running in Chrome, Chrome now launches with all of your extensions and customizations enabled, once you log into the Chrome instance launched by Visual Studio.
