ET's VS and TFS World Fascinating tidbits about VS and TFS and .NET (well I hope...)

Have a look at Brian Harry’s blog entry on the next generation power tools probably available end of October…

A new team menu with presence, and team based tasks…

A new way to download project related custom add-ins like check-in policy and Custom work item control.  This is something I commented about way back in 2005 as a big hole to fix.  I’m glad they tackled this. This is going to be very sweet in a corporate environment.

Shell integration looks great but I’m not really a fan of that.  I would rather live in VS so a lot of those functions I already have integrated.  But I know a lot of folks that have been waiting for this.  This will compete nicely with the subversion equivalent.

PowerShell support is also cool.  All the command line utilities in PS… sweet!!

 

I’m really exited about this next release and I’m looking forward to using them.

Here are a few pics to wet your appetite… go to Brian’s blog for a lot more.

 

Cheers,

ET
