The only "issue" i have as a frontend & backend developer is the frontend part, but that has nothing to do with EPi, just that VS aint' a good platform for frontend development, way to slow imo.

Hi,

I've been using VS2015 since its release last year with various projects of Episerver, and there have been no issues.

EPiServer has nothing todo with vs2015 or any for that matter you just need to make sure that the project can be upgraded to the latest version. Moving from for instance 2013 to 2015 and back is seemles since 2015 support the project from vs2013 fully. I actully move between diffrent versions of vs in the same project cause of a problem with vs2015 nuget manager that I have.

So the is no problem at all working with 2015 and epi cms 8 since it has not anything todo with the version of vs. You can actually use VS Code or sublime as long as you do not need to compile the project. I use Code from time to time when opening a project and making a small change since it is a bit faster then the complete version.

Yup, I am another one who currently used VS2015 with .NET 4.6 on our eCommerce project, everything went fine, except a few issues with Rosyln compiler which required to recompile the solution sometimes.

You can see the officially supported version of VS here 

http://world.episerver.com/documentation/Items/System-Requirements/system-requirements---episerver/

This will mostly matter for the vs extension and alloy project however. So if you can live without these you can basically code in notepad. 

So answer is again, no...(but it works) :)
