    I think I missed posting dogfood stats last month - sorry about that. It's just been so busy with all of the recent releases going on, it's been difficult to find time to do it. The “big change” in the past couple of months is that the Visual Studio central...

    Improvements for testing in VSTS 2008

    • 4 Comments
    Compared to our VSTS 2005 release, the 2008 release is a fairly modest release. Mostly it's filling gaps in the offering and adding in a few nice new features. However, I think the improvements we've made in testing are are under appreciated. IMHO, we...
