WebMatrix Web Site Development Tool Discontinued

The free WebMatrix Web site development and publishing tool is discontinued, and support for it will end on Nov. 1, 2017. WebMatrix mainly targets small development teams, hobbyists, and students, so most organizations will see little impact, but there is no direct replacement. WebMatrix is a tool for building, testing, and deploying small to medium-sized Web applications. The latest release, WebMatrix 3, became available in May 2013. A newer alternative to WebMatrix is Visual Studio Code, a free, open source, lightweight code editor and debugger supported on Linux, macOS, and Windows.
