Today we released the Japanese version of the Team System Web Access Power Tool. Long ago, I announced that we would be releasing localized version of TSWA with the VS 2008 products. Well, today it is becoming a reality. Over the next few weeks,
One of the most common areas for questions around TFS is using the TFS automated build system. How do I build .NET 1.1 apps with TFS 2005/TFS 2008? How do I build VS 2005 solutions with TFS 2008? How do I customize the build number Team Build generates?
We’ve gotten quite a few requests from customers over the past couple of months for more information comparing each of the VS 2008 product offerings. We have just published a pretty massive feature comparison to help you pick the product that is right for you.

Back around the Holidays I promised 3 “surveys” but I actually only described 2 of them. I’ve finally gotten around to writing up the 3rd one.
In our next release, we are building a slew of new features designed to make managing branching and merging simpler.
Update: With Team Foundation Server 2010, you no longer need to download and run the TFSVersionDetection.exe tool as this functionality is baked into the Team Foundation Server administration console.
