Today, we released the Alpha version of the TFS Integration Platform on CodePlex. For all of the details, including the docs and source code, check out the project page: http://tfsintegration.codeplex.com
If you check out the project page, you’ll soon realize that this project has replaced the former TFS Migration and Synchronization Toolkit that was hosted on CodePlex. We’ve actually reused the same project page, but have updated the URL and project information to reflect the changes that have been made. Visiting the previous project URL (http://migrationsynctoolkit.codeplex.com) will redirect to the current project page.
The TFS Integration Platform is different from its predecessor project in many ways. First, we listened to the feedback that the community had on the old project and used that to shape the new project. Here are a few things we’ve changed this time around:
Another change that we’ve consciously made was to rebrand the project to the TFS Integration Platform. We felt that the description “toolkit” wasn’t accurate compared to what other “toolkits” consisted of, and that our functionality was more in line with what a “platform” offers. Changing from “migration and synchronization” to simply “integration” was about simplifying the message about the purpose, and helping to disambiguate from upgrade scenarios which are often confused with migration. Overall, we hope this name change results in a clearer focus for this project.
So, if you’ve looked at the Migration Toolkit in the past, or have a need to integrate another system with TFS, check out the CodePlex homepage for the project and stay tuned for more updates!
