This exciting new ‘Shared Source’ facility provides a venue to bring together developers and provides them tools, source code and an advanced platform for designing and building software.

CodePlex is just one of the ways in which Microsoft is fostering collaborative community innovation.

CodePlex functionality, built on Microsoft Visual Studio® 2005 Team Foundation Server, provides source control, issue tracking, discussion forums and RSS feeds in and out of each project so that members can stay up to date on the development issues most important to them. Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server enables developers to collaboratively develop, share, discuss and consume source code and build software.

The Shared Source Initiative and open source projects available on CodePlex today include projects such as the “Atlas” Control Toolkit, IronPython 1.01 Beta 1 and Power Toys for Visual Studio. More information about these and other projects is available at
