Dogfood I/O Analysis

I've been falling so far behind on everything I'm supposed to do I just can't stand it.  Today is my day to try to catch up on blogging.  I promised I'd follow up on the dogfood I/O analysis from the Orcas upgrade.  Well, I got the results a week or two ago and I just can't find anything particularly useful.  The problem is...

April DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

It’s now been over a month since the DevDiv dogfood server upgrade to Orcas bits.  We’ve continued to poke and prod at the server and make patches as we identify issues.  The rate has slowed down from that first hectic week of several patches a day to about 1 a week or so now.  Overall performance is much better and ...

Configuring TFS to use Sharepoint 2007

Over the past several months we've gotten countless requests from people who want to use the new Sharepoint 2007 (WSS 3.0) with their TFS server (instead of Sharepoint 2003 (WSS 2.0)).  Our plan has been to release support for Sharepoint 2007 in the Orcas release of TFS.  However, demand has been so overwhelming that we decided to go...

Check out Soma's blog today: http://blogs.msdn.com/somasegar/archive/2007/04/15/silverlight-the-next-generation-web-media-experiences.aspx He announced a new project called Silverlight that enables amazingly cool cross browsers, cross platform web apps to be written.  I've seen some of the demos and they are stunning.  I suspect over...

Process MeNtOR

Last week I saw a demo of Process MeNtOR by Object Consulting.  They have built a really nice process template for VSTS.  If process is something you care about, I'd highly recommend you look into it.  In several ways it's better than the process templates we ship in the box.  The thing that impressed me most about it is ...

Cool work item add-on

Sorry for so many posts today but I'm working through my mail backlog from last week and running across a ton of cool stuff.  Here's one someone sent me that enables management of work item hierarchies and a neat "recycle bin" for work items.  http://loicbaumann.blog.com/1664355/  Brian...

Progress on devBiz Components

Thank you for your patience as we work through the feedback we've gotten after announcing the devBiz acquisition.  The last open issue is feedback from customers of the devBiz components (devMail, etc.) that need a way forward for their use of the components now that they aren't being sold any longer. As I've said ...

Process for requesting TeamPlain refunds

In an earlier post I described the refund program we are putting in place for people who purchased TeamPlain from devBiz just before they were acquired by Microsoft.  Refunds are available to people who purchased with 30 days before the close of the acquisition (in other words, any purchase on or after 2/26/07) if it is requested before 6...

Back by Popular Demand

Due to the demand for the VSTS Web Access v2.0 preview, we have again made it available on the devBiz site here: http://www.devbiz.com/teamplain/webaccess/download.aspx This is a pre-release of what will become the TFS Power Tool release of the VSTS Web Access feature.  As I've mentioned before, testing has not yet been completed on it so...
