We’ve recently started bring some larger Microsoft teams into VS Online.  That has been a very enlightening experience.  It has particularly highlighted issues with fit and finish for high bandwidth activities like bug triage, performance and scale issues with larger data sets, etc.

This sprint (sprint 70), deploying today, we’ve delivered a large number of smallish improvements based on what we’ve learned.  I think this pattern will continue for the next couple of sprints as we get everyone “settled in” to using VS Online in heavy daily use.

**IMPORTANT** This deployment is going to span the weekend and many accounts won’t see all of the improvements until Monday Sept 8th.

You can read more about the specific improvements in Aaron’s new post: http://visualstudio.com/en-us/news/2014-sep-4-vso.

There’s also a chunk of work in this sprint (also described in the release notes) that’s our next installment in our new open web extensibility model.  The most significant improvement is substantially improved REST APIs for work item tracking but the coolest addition is Hubot support.

As always, let us know what you think,
