Monday was the official launch for the TFS and VS 2010 releases!  I highly recommend upgrading from TFS 2005 or TFS 2008 to TFS 2010.  The number of new features in TFS 2010 is very long, and there are lots of posts on them.  One of the most exciting is that you can install TFS on a client OS (e.g., Windows 7) using SQL Express 2008.  Brian Harry runs TFS and VS 2010 on his Win7 netbook that has 2GB of RAM.

For those of you using VS 2005 and VS 2008 to connect to TFS 2010 servers, you’ll need to install the appropriate patch for compatibility.  We had to make some changes to the behavior of the server for the new features that affects the older clients, and we didn’t want to leave the old clients in a bad state.  These are the final versions of the patches.
