Wow, I’ve been struggling to keep up with the releases coming out so this is just a quick summary in case you haven’t seen it all. I’m then going to allocate some time to look at each of these in more detail and report back:

Hosted TFS

The Windows Azure based Visual Studio Team Foundation Service Preview has been announced. This provides a cloud hosted TFS solution supporting:

  • Source control
  • Work item tracking
  • Agile project management (a new feature in TFS 11)
  • Build automation (currently requiring a TFS 11 CTP build agent on your own hardware)

Brian Harry has provided a great overview of the TFS Preview.

Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview

  • Windows 8 Metro Apps support
  • Code Clone Analysis
  • Code Review Workflow
  • Exploratory Testing and Enhanced Unit Testing

Now available to MSDN subscribers and on Friday to everyone.
