You can download Team Explorer Everywhere 2013 Update 1 (version 12.0.1) from the Download Center or install the TFS plug-in for Eclipse from directly within your Eclipse IDE (update site URL: http://dl.microsoft.com/eclipse/tfs).
Improvements in Update 1 include…
The VS Online service blog describes new capabilities we just delivered on the service for building Java projects managed in Git. TEE Update 1 provides the client tools necessary to utilize these new features. Here is a summary of what is now possible on the service when using TEE Update 1:
The detailed steps for setting up a build for your Java projects can be found on the Build your Eclipse projects page of visualstudio.com.
Our plan is to ship support for building Java projects in Git in the on premises Team Foundation Server in Visual Studio 2013.2. Stay tuned.
Users can now control where build output goes (for both TFVC and Git builds). This feature has been available to Visual Studio users for a while, and is now available to TEE users via the Build Definition dialog. Users can choose between not copying the output anywhere, copying the output to a UNC path, copying the output to source control (for TFVC), and copying the output to the server. The last option (copy build output to the server) is the recommended option for both TFVC and Git builds and is the default now.
We continue to improve the experience for Eclipse developers working with Git projects on Visual Studio Online and Team Foundation Server. Two minor, but noteworthy improvements worth mentioning:
1) EGit tools can now be easily accessed from Team Explorer:
2) New options for handling imported Git repositories
Our Git import wizard has been improved to give you the ability to select one or more folders from a cloned repository to import as generic Eclipse projects into the workspace. Previously our import wizard would only allow you to import Eclipse projects discovered in the clone repository. This was fine if you were already working with Eclipse projects in your repository, but if not, you would have to go through additional steps before you could see your files and start working with them. This is no longer a problem.
One other noteworthy addition in Update 1: we have refreshed the language pack for all languages and have added Chinese (Traditional) language support.
Pick up the latest update and give us any feedback you've got. We’ll be busy working on the next one :)
