Happy Day! VS2010 SP1, Project Server Integration, Load Test Feature Pack

Microsoft released a PILE of Visual Studio goodness today:

Visual Studio 2010 SP1(Including TFS SP1)

Finally done with remembering which GDR packs, KB Patches, etc need to be installed with a new VS/TFS 2010 deployment.  Just grab the SP1.  It’s available today for MSDN Subscribers and March 10th for public download.

TFS-Project Server Integration Feature Pack

MSDN Subscribers got another little treat today with the TFS-Project Server integration feature pack.  We can now get project rollups and portfolio level management with Project Server yet still have the tight developer interaction with TFS.  Finally we can make the PMO happy without duplicate entry or MS Project gymnastics.

Visual Studio Load Test Feature Pack

This is a new benefit for Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate subscribers.  Previously there was a limit to Ultimate Load Testing of 250 virtual users. If you needed more, you had to buy virtual user license packs.  No more.  Now your Visual Studio Ultimate license allows you to simulate as many virtual users as you need!!  This is HUGE in improving adoption of regular load testing for development projects.

All the Details are available from Soma’s blog.
