I went on vacation for a few days this week and lo and behold while I'm gone the team has released our next version of the TFS Power Tools (formerly Power Toys). We've numbered it Version 1.2 but I prefer to refer to it as the Feb '07 release. There's a grab bag of new stuff in this release, including:
You can download the new TFPT release from here
I've already seen one problem crop up - uninstalling the old TFPT release on Vista. You get the error "Error 1721. There is a problem with with Windows Installer package. ...". You either need to disable UAC or you can run msiexec /i tfpt.msi.
I'll try to post any other issues as I learn about them. Here's a link to the forum where you can ask any question you have about the new release.
We had originally hoped to get this out in early December but a number of things conspired to make it take longer than we had hoped. As you can see there's quite a bit of new stuff here and hopefully you will find it useful. Let us know what you think and what you'd like to see in future releases.
We're already starting to plan what's next. We've got a Vista sidebar tool already nearly complete and a bunch of other stuff in the hopper. We haven't set a date yet but I'm hoping for something like April. We'll see.
