Team Foundation Services Updates 6/26

Well, the last 3 weeks were busy.  We announced our Azure Continuous Deployment support and removed the invitation codes to open the service up to everyone.  As I wrote in my Spring wrap up post, we’ve kind of emptied the pipeline of all of the big stuff we’ve had in progress.  So this sprint, we’ve got a few ...
