  • Blog Post: Resolve improvements in Dev10 – Server and Target edits

  • Blog Post: New features in next release of TF

    Brian published a few screen shots of tools that we are working on right now for the next major release of TFS (not SP1). The Branch Visualization (Scenario 2 and 3) are amazing but right now my personal favorite is improved history (Scenario 1) . While working on my feature I was doing some forward...
