With P4VS versions up to and including 2016.1 the Visual Studio status bar will show:
  • P4VS messages
  • Visual Assist messages
  • Intellisense messages
  • The current error message when pressing F8 to jump to next error

With 2016.2 and 2017.1 I only get a brief 'Perforce connected' message and then 'Ready'. None of the other status bar messages ever appear, it's 100% stuck on 'Ready'.

Is it possible that recent versions of P4VS are constantly resetting the status bar when they have nothing to report?

I'm currently sticking with 2016.1 as I find that stepping through compile errors with F8 and seeing the message on the status bar really useful.

I'm currently using VS2015 + Update 3.

Got an email this morning saying P4VS 2017.2 was available and in the release notes:

1526181 (Bug 89888) *
The P4VS status bar in the lower left of Visual Studio has
been removed in order to no longer obscure other Visual
Studio information that is displayed there. Information for
OFFLINE and connected status can be seen in the P4VS
Connection toolbar.


The initial release of P4VS 2017.2 supports: Visual Studio 2017.
  For Visual Studio versions 2013 and 2015 please use P4VS 2017.1
  which can be downloaded from:
Hope this fix comes to 2015 versions :)
