Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 RC is ready

Microsoft just announced the availability of Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 RC. You can get it from here. Usually I don’t write to much about Visual Studio stuffs, but this one is important to us as it brings one major change to SharePoint apps model development. The Autohosted option is removed from the SharePoint app creation experience, because the Office 365 Autohosted Apps Preview program ended on June 30. New autohosted apps for SharePoint are no longer accepted by the SharePoint store. Existing autohosted apps are not affected, and apps that are currently running in the service will not be shut down. More information about it and plans you can find at official blog here. There’s official document at MSDN which provides to us information how to convert an autohosted app for SharePoint to a provider-hosted app.
