During its unveiling of Visual Studio Online Microsoft also showed off some new compiler technology that has not yet been released to the public. ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley says sources tell her the new compiler is codenamed “Project N.” It improves app performance by compiling .NET code directly to native code.

“I’ve gotten a few tips in recent months about ‘Project N,’ which, according to my contacts, is designed to make applications developed in .Net/C# work better on Windows 8 and Windows RT via new compiler technology under development at the company,” writes Foley. “My tipsters have said Microsoft is planning to go public with its Project N plans in 2014.”
