I promised I'd publish the list of Team Foundation Server 2008 SP1 bug fixes and here they are.  I've attempted a new twist this time and included information about how we found out about the bug.  I figured you might be interested in seeing how many of them come from you.  It's also interesting to see how many come from our own internal dogfooding efforts.  The counts break down as follows:

Count Source
227 Total bug fixes
87 Customers
62 Testing
38 Development process
30 Dogfooding
2 Other

 

As you can see, the largest source of bug reports that we fixed was directly from customers.  Thank you very much for using our variety of feedback mechanisms to help us improve the product.  We'll continue to listen and address everything we can.

Of course, all of this is in addition to the great new features that we shipped in TFS 2008 SP1.

Here's the detailed list of fixes in some rough categories.  As always, I know they titles are a bit cryptic.  I've done some work to scrub them and make them meaningful but it's a lot of them and some of the bug descriptions would take a paragraph to really convey what they mean.  None-the-less, there is some really good information here if you are looking to understand what has changed.
