  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Service Update – Feb 11

    Yes, I know it’s hard to believe it’s time again already. Didn’t we just have all those big announcements – Git support, Test Hub, Work item tags…? Yes. We had last sprint’s deployment on Jan 21, then all the big announcements on Jan 30 and now it’s time for...
  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Server and IE8

    This is one of those posts that I can’t win by writing but I have to anyway.  It can’t make anyone happy and will undoubtedly garner me some amount of flame, but here it goes. We’ve been working hard over the past couple of years to improve and expand our web experiences for TFS.  In TFS 11...

  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Server on Azure IaaS

    I’ve been getting a few questions lately about whether or not we support TFS on Azure IaaS.  The truth is that a number of us have set up and used it on IaaS but we have never really formally tested it.  My biggest question was performance.  We’ve just finished running some performance...
  • Blog Post: Customizable kanban swim lanes

    It’s been a crazy week with all of the announcements.  Among the demos I did Wednesday was one that hasn’t gotten much coverage yet.  The reason is because you can’t put your hands on it but you will be able to in about a month.  We introduced a kanban board into Team Foundation Service...

  • Blog Post: Hotfixes for TFS 2012 Update 1 (TFS 2012.1)

    Thank you for being patient.  If you’ve followed my blog, you’ve seen that we’ve struggled a bit with some issues we introduced in our initial Update 1 release.  A few weeks ago, we released a patch and quickly pulled it back as we found some people with install issues.  Stung with humiliation...

    Today we released the first Community Technology Preview (CTP) of Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 (VS2012.2). It’s exciting to see the next update of VS working it’s way to completion. There’s going to be a ton of cool new capabilities in Update 2. Not all of them are available in this...
  • Blog Post: OData for Team Foundation Service

    Last week I wrote about accessing TFS using OData and how this makes writing device apps against TFS easier.  Friday, we published the OData support on our online service – Team Foundation Service at: https://tfsodata.visualstudio.com .  If you go to that url, you’ll find some basic instructions...
  • Blog Post: Stand-alone installer for TFS object model

    For years we’ve had requests for an easier way to install the Team Foundation Server object model.  Since 2005, the only way to install it was to install VS or Team Explorer, both of which included a VS shell, Office extensions and a bunch of stuff that you really didn’t need to do basic programmability...
  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Service Update – Jan 21

    I mentioned a couple of sprints ago that we were going to be investing in making the source control experience in the browser shine.  We’ve just finished sprint 42 and are deploying it today.  The biggest change you’ll notice is a new context menu when exploring changes in source files that...

  • Blog Post: Accessing Team Foundation Server with OData

    TFS has very nice SDKs for building both .NET & Java applications for it.  However, some platforms – particularly some devices don’t support those SDKs.  On those platforms, often the easiest way to access a service is with REST or Json.  Brian Keller recently blogged about an update...
  • Blog Post: Skype and the new Team Explorer

    As you probably know, we made a pretty significant rev of the Team Explorer in VS 2012.  As part of that we did a re-think of the Team Members Power Tool to provide a much nicer collaboration experience than what we could do in VS 2010.  The Power Tools Team Collaboration tool supports Lync...
  • Blog Post: TFS 2012 Update 1 Hotfix

    *** Updated Jan 14th 2013 *** Some days you just want to crawl in a corner and cry. We released this patch on Friday to address customer reported issues in Update 1 and over the weekend had a significant bug reported in the patch.

  • Blog Post: TFS 2010 will not support SQL 2012

    With every release – of our product or a dependency, we think hard about the test/support matrix. As we developed Team Foundation Server 2012, we decided to support both SQL 2008 R2 and SQL 2012 – due to the close release proximity. TFS 2010, of course was released WAY before SQL 2012 and...
  • Blog Post: Renaming your Team Foundation Service account

    We’ve seen a growing cadre of people who created Team Foundation Service accounts and have decided they don’t like the name they chose.  So far this has required that you contact our support organization.  They would have to delete the account and then you could create a new one with the name...
  • Blog Post: VS/TFS 2012 Release Candidate expiring

    I’m starting to receive mails from a number of people observing that their installs of the 2012 Release Candidate are approaching expiration on Jan 15.  That’s just over a week away.  I’m being asked if there’s some way to extend the expiration because the customer isn’t ready to upgrade. ...
  • Blog Post: Git-TF 2.0.1 Released

    Today we shipped a new binary release of the Git-TF tools.  We did a deployment of the Team Foundation Service yesterday and one of the things that changed was the way that we do basic authentication.  We are currently doing some work to make talking to TFS easier, this will help people building...

    The results of our sprint 41 were deployed today.  You can read the news about them on the release notes .

  • Blog Post: Team Explorer Extensibility

    We redesigned the Team Explorer window in TFS 2012.  Previously, it was simple tree control with limited flexibility.  In 2012, we made it richer page navigation system that enables much more control over data presentation.  We’ve also received a bunch of feedback on things people don...
  • Blog Post: Retrospective on TFS 2012 Update 1

    In late November I made a tour of a few cities in Europe, speaking about VS/TFS 2012 and application lifecycle management.  One of the talks I gave a couple of times was about how we are managing our new release cadence.  We are shipping a service every 3 weeks and a new on premises server...
