Praktik Hosting of Team Foundation Server

I’ve seen a lot of companies asking themselves whether they want to host their own ALM solution or pay someone else to do it.  Most are still deciding to do it for themselves but I see more people deciding to let someone else do it every year.  Being able to rely on someone else to provide a 24x7, global, reliable service is ...

VS 2010 & .NET 4 Public Release Candidate Planned

I've written extensively in the last few weeks about the feedback we've gotten from our Beta 2.  I hope you can tell we've heard your feedback, we are taking it very seriously and are committed to shipping a product that you love.  I'm grateful for all of the feedback you've given.  I'm also grateful to all of you who have been ...

Update on Debugger Perf

One of the things we got a lot of performance feedback on in Beta 2 was the debugger.  We’ve been working hard on it since Beta 2 and it’s looking much better.  There was no single thing that was a magic bullet that made everything go faster – but rather a whole lot of small things that together have made a huge difference.&#...

Proof point for improved TFS 2010 manageability

A last comment on editor/IntelliSense improvements

I got some data on some of the changes the languages team has made from Scott Wiltamuth (PUM of the languages team). The first change is in the message dispatching priority that we do in keystroke processing.  As a user is typing code that involves statement completion UI, we have a choice to make about the relative priority of (a) ...

Requests for access to VS 2010 post Beta 2 SLCTP builds

Since I posted my offer to hook you up with one of the Super-Limited Community Technology Preview builds, I have received a number of requests.  I'm happy to do it but I want to clarify one thing.  A few people seem to have the assumption that the build will be more stable than Beta 2 and therefore a great upgrade for their daily use...
