August 11 TFS Power Tools Released

The August ‘11 TFS Power Tools are ready for download.

Brian Harry has a good summary of the update here.

The big visible changes are:

1. The ability to use the shell extensions against a TFS not on the same domain as your PC.  You now get a credentials prompt.

2. Work Item Search!!  The Work Item Tracking toolbar now contains a search box.  I know my friend and fellow MVP Etienne Tremblay has been asking for this for about 5 years!

3. Rollback IN THE UI!!  TFS 2010 introduced rollback.  However, you had to use the command line to do it.  Due to this I know many people that didn’t even know it existed.  The Power Tools now add this capability right into the Source Control Explorer or Version History window.

There are a bunch of other things you can look up in Brian’s blog.

So, what are you waiting for?  Grab it HERE!
