Microsoft just announced (well, back on 12/21) that the Power Tools have been updated and enhanced for Visual Studio 2008.

Here's a quick list of the highlights:

  • "Find in Source Control" - right-click option to search in source by status, filename, and changeset
  • "Open in Windows Explorer" - right-click option to open a location in Windows Explorer
  • The ability to completely destroy both Work Items and Work Item Types (finally, we can clean up all those test WITs!)
  • An updated Process Template Editor (including performance improvements and bug fixes)

Here's a link to an announcement: http://blogs.msdn.com/edhintz/archive/2007/12/21/team-foundation-power-tools-for-vs2008-hot-now.aspx.

And here's the download: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=8013790.

Of course, don't forget to first grab the 2008 version of the Team Explorer. This must be installed prior to installing the new 2008 Power Tools.
