The plugin version is slowing down Visual studio all the time:


"Extension 'P4VS - Helix Plugin for Visual Studio 2018.2.165.3037' likely caused 24 seconds of unresponsiveness. Disabling it may improve your experience." (see above screenshot/attachment)

Also it does not checkout files always when starting to open and editing a file as i can see in "P4V". I have to "Check out.." my whole code tree and "Reverted unchanged files". This is not acceptable.

When can we expect a new Visual Studio plugin?

The plugin will be changed in a near future version to load asynchronously when installed in Visual Studio 2015 and 2017. That should improve the responsiveness.

More details would be useful with regard to files not being checked out on edit. Could you please contact support@perforce.com so that we may open a case on the problem?
