So, where’d the other hundred megabytes go? On-line – that’s where. The latest Visual Studio SDK really only contains the core content necessary to build new VSIP packages and other extensibility projects. All of the documentation and samples have been moved to their new home on MSDN Code Gallery.
Of course, that includes the Team Foundation Server 2010 Beta 2 SDK samples and documentation. It also includes a starter set of code snippets which aren’t full-on samples, but give users programming against our object model quick, narrowly scoped answers to common implementation questions. Lastly, there’s a compiled HTML help (CHM) file that provides some basic documentation on our client object model.
We currently have half of the samples that shipped with TFS 2008 RTM updated for 2010 Beta 2 and published to Code Gallery. Due to some recent API changes, these will require additional updating prior to RTM. The remaining work is as follows:
If there are particular samples or snippets that you’d like to see, post a comment or drop me a line.
