Today the Team Foundation Server team announced the release of version 1.2 of Team Foundation Power Tools (formally known as Power Toys). What are the Power Toys you say? They're extra functionality delivered out of band for Team Foundation Server including some really useful stuff (get changes for changeset, consolidated annotation of a file, command line history, and rollback to name a few).
In the latest release they have included support for Windows Vista (woo-hoo!) and several new tools:
One thing that I am very excited for is the new path policy (included in the Check-In Policy Pack). This allows policies to be applied to specific paths in team foundation server (i.e. don't check for valid unit tests on a directory with 3rd party source code). The other policy I'm excited for is the work item query policy—my project teams have several builds operating concurrently within the same team project and sometimes a private build is executed and picks up work items and associations not belonging to it specifically creating false relationships and throwing off some of our reporting.
