Gee, time flies when you are having fun. I can't believe it's been another 4 months since my last post on Orcas features.
At this point TFS 2008 is basically done! We've got a few bugs left to fix and we are still taking feedback from Beta 2 but we're focusing on quality, stability and ensuring TFS works in a wide array of configurations at this point. As such, I expect this to be my final feature list post for TFS 2008. I hope you are happy with what we've done. Hopefully you've picked up Beta 2 and tried it out for yourself. We've really tried to focus on addressing things that are most important to you. Most of the feedback I've seen on Beta 2 so far has been very positive.
From here on out, I'll be doing separate posts on our Rosario feature list as that unfolds.
I've marked significant additions since the last roadmap report with (new). I've marked things that did not make Beta 2 but will be in RTM as (RTM).

Compatibility (no change since last time)
As Orcas is an adoption focused release, we have put a lot of emphasis on compatibility with VS2005. We are striving for near 100% compatibility. The Orcas client will be able to work with a VS2005 server and a VS2005 client will be able to work with an Orcas server. There are only a few compatibility issues.
