Matias did a very nice write up of the new TFS version control offline support that is now available in Beta 2.  I thought it would be good to share it with you.  He mentions one issue about having to close and reopen the solution - we are looking into that problem now.  Overall, the offline experience for TFS in 2005 was not ...

A Rosario Milestone

Yesterday, we signed off on the release of the first CTP for our Rosario release of VSTS.  Rosario, as you may recall, is the code name for the release of VSTS that will follow the VS/VSTS 2008 (Orcas) release.  We have not (and will not soon) be announcing anticipated timelines for Rosario, so for now you'll have to be happy with ...
