  • Blog Post: Some thoughts on a comment about VS 2012.3

    Yesterday, I got a thoughtful comment from Dean on my post about Update 3.  I sat down to write a response this morning and it turned into a but of a novel (in fact, the blog says it’s too long to post as a comment ).  So I’ve turned it into a post.  Here was Dean’s comment: Brian, I looked...

  • Blog Post: Updated TFS 2010 MSSCCI Provider

    Last week we released an update to the TFS 2010 MSSCCI provider .  The primary motivator for this release was to enable it to work with VS 2005.  This now enables you to connect to TFS 2012 using VS 2005, particularly from Windows XP.  The support for VS 2005 was the only enhancement to...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Tools for Git Update available

    Yesterday, we released a major update to our Visual Studio Tools for Git.  While still nowhere near done, we feel like we’ve crossed a significant threshold of completeness and usability.  If you’re already using them or have tried them and didn’t feel they were ready, I encourage you to give...

    We are continuing our journey to deliver a final release of Update 2.  You can read about the CTP3 we shipped a few weeks ago here .  The most notable thing about this CTP is that it is “go-live”.  One of our big learnings from shipping Update 1 was that we really do need feedback from...

  • 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...
