  • Blog Post: Git vulnerability with .git\config

    Today the Git community disclosed an issue in Git that, in the worst case, could allow a developer’s machine to be taken over.  This is an issue that manifests across much of the Git ecosystem and is not unique to Microsoft’s Git implementation or to Windows.  I’ll describe the problem and...
  • Blog Post: A new Visual Studio Online and Team Foundation Server Features Timeline

    We are always working on ways to communicate more effectively with customers about what we have done, what people like and don’t like, what they want, what we’re planning, etc.  A year or so ago we added a Features Timeline page to our News section of visualstudio.com as one step in that journey...

  • Blog Post: VS & TFS 2013 Update 4 CTP 1 is available

  • Blog Post: TFS Adoption at Microsoft – July 2014

    Years ago, I used to do monthly updates on TFS adoption at Microsoft.  Eventually, the numbers got so astronomical that it just seemed silly so I stopped doing them.  It’s been long enough and there’s some changes happening that I figured it was worth updating you all on where we are. First...
  • Blog Post: TFS Upgrade Improvements in TFS 2013.3

    I’ve talked about this before but something happened today that got me thinking about it again.  One of the necessary components of the rapid release cycle we are on for VS and TFS is an easy and seamless upgrade process.  All through the 2012 Update cycle (.1, .2, .3) we worked on making the...

  • Blog Post: The effect of Updates

  • Blog Post: Use of SQL 2014 with TFS 2013

    We’ve certified TFS 2013 (and its subsequent updates) to work with SQL 2014. However, there’s a hitch. Because TFS 2013 shipped before SQL, the license than grants the right to use it with SQL Server only allows SQL Server 2012. Starting July 1st, we will be adding SQL Server 2014 to the...
  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Server on Azure IaaS Guidance

    Over the last year, I’ve run across numerous customers who are looking for cloud benefits but aren’t ready to go to VS Online – for any number of reasons.  I asked the Ranger team to put together some guidance on helping people make this decision and then best practices should the decision be to...

  • Blog Post: Is Microsoft abandoning TFVC in favor of Git?

    No. This is an example of the power of social media.  I had planned to ignore it but I’ve had enough requests for “official confirmation” that I guess I have to say something :). Last week someone tweeted “Microsoft phasing out the TFS version control repository and moving to Git . Unofficially...
