I hope the holidays are treating you well.  We've just finished opening presents at my house and the kids are all bouncing off the walls with joy.  As I said in my last post, it's been a busy holiday season and I haven't had much time to post.  After the new year, things should return a little bit more to normal.

In the mean time, I wanted to alert you to a couple of new deliveries...

Brian Randell has published a new set of VSTS evaluation VPCs.  These extend the expiration date a year and include all the updated components you could want.  You can read about it here: http://www.pluralsight.com/community/blogs/brian/archive/2008/12/24/happy-holidays-and-look-what-santa-s-brought.aspx

In addition, the VSTS Ranger team has produced and update TFS Branching Guide to explain best practices for parallel development and branching and explain how to use TFS to accomplish it.  You can download it here: http://www.codeplex.com/TFSBranchingGuideII

Have a great holiday...

Brian
