In a previous post on the subject, I explained that this is a pretty small update focused primarily on getting VS 2013 working better with versions of IE prior to IE 10. I also explained that there would be no update to TFS available for Update 1.
You can get Update 1 through numerous channels, including the VS Update facility built into Visual Studio (you will get a notification), from MSDN subscriber downloads or from the Microsoft download center here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=301714

The good news (particularly for TFS users) is that Update 2 is very close behind Update 1 and there will be a new version of TFS released for Update 2. We're just wrapping up feature work on Update 2 this week and will soon be releasing our first CTP. We’re just beginning the process of polishing, bug fixing, etc. to release a solid Update.
In the next couple of weeks I’ll write a post describing the features that we’ve included in TFS 2013.2. Our two biggest areas of investment in this release have been Agile Project Management (and general work tracking) and the next increment of Git tooling. I’ll also cover the highlights of the VS improvements in VS 2013.2 – there are quite a few. Stay tuned for a more complete description.
