The Visual Studio Team Foundation Server (TFS) group has released a beta version of the Feature Pack for integration of TFS 2010 with Project Server. The beta version is a “go live” release. If the user agrees to the pre-release license agreement, the Feature Pack can be installed and will be supported in a production environment. However, it is not the final release, and is still subject to change, so you should first test it in a non-production environment.
Note The TFS Feature Pack requires the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate edition, SP1, and TFS 2010 SP1. It can work with either Project Server 2010 or Project Server 2007.

If you have worked with TFS, you know what a great advantage that is for large development projects – and even for small ones. You already know what an amazing tool Project Server is. The TFS-PS Feature Pack brings together the two best-in-the-world tools for team collaboration on development projects, and enables development-focused and project-focused people to keep working with the tool they know best and to truly combine forces.
