Brian Harry has announced the release of “Eaglestone”, which is the first release of the cross platform team explorer following the acquisition of the Teamprise assets. His blog provides a lot of details but I’ve just downloaded the Eclipse plugin and thought I’d point out a few differences when compared to the Teamprise solution:

When you right-click on a project and select Share Project you now see “Team Foundation Server” rather than Teamprise.

There are Microsoft T&C’s to read and accept, then select the trial option for now.

There’s a Team Foundation Server Exploring perspective (replaces the Teamprise perspective)

A lot of the TFS 2010 features are now supported – in this shot you can see child Tasks for a User Story being handled correctly (I created these work items with Eaglestone as well).

Looks good – I’m going to play around with it some more and let you know what else I find.

Cheers,
Giles
