Team Foundation Service Update – May 28

Sorry for being a little late with this but I’ve been traveling this week and it’s thrown me off.  On Tues May 28th, we deployed our Sprint 48 build to Team Foundation Service.  It was quite gratifying to see the deployment go incredibly smoothly given that the last few sprints have been a bit rough.  I’d like ...

Visual Studio 2012.3 RC2 available

We are getting close to shipping Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server 2012.3 (Update 3).  This week we shipped Release Candidate 2 (RC2).  We’re down to fixing just the last few bugs and if you are thinking up upgrading to Update 3, now would be a good time to give it a try and let us know if there are any last minute ...

Support on Team Foundation Service

Update: Um, egg on face.  When I first posted this, it ended up having the email thread with the customer attached.  I updated it to remove it as quickly as possible but I sincerely apologize. I got an email from a customer a couple of days ago asking about issues he was having with Team Foundation Service.  After looping in ...

New Windows Dev Center release

Yesterday we launched a new Windows Dev Center.  You might ask “Why are you telling us about that, Brian?”  Well, the answer is that my team is responsible for MSDN and much of the infrastructure behind it.  We partner very closely with the Windows team team produce an awesome Windows Dev Center.  Yesterday was the ...

Some thoughts on a comment about VS 2012.3

Yesterday, I got a thoughtful comment from Dean on my post about Update 3.  I sat down to write a response this morning and it turned into a but of a novel (in fact, the blog says it’s too long to post as a comment ).  So I’ve turned it into a post.  Here was Dean’s comment: Brian, I looked at the list of fixes, you...

TFS 2012.2 Power Tools update available

Yesterday we released our update to the TFS 2012 Power Tools to work with VS/TFS 2012.2 (Update 2). Yes, I see the irony in announcing this the day after announcing the first “go-live” Update 3 CTP   It took us longer than we had hoped to get the Power Tools ready.  However, we’ve made a key change to ...

Visual Studio 2012.3 (Update 3) “go-live” CTP is now available

I know it seems like 2012.2 just released (at least it does to me) but we’re already well into our schedule for 2012.3.  Today, we released the updates for both Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server.  This is the first “go-live” release in the 2012.3 line of CTPs – this means that we’ve tested it to ...

Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 (VS 2012.2) ISOs available

I’ve had a healthy discussion with some of you on this post and we’ve received quite a lot of feedback on Soma’s blog and other places.  Based on this feedback we’ve produced ISOs for Visual Studio Update 2 and decided that for these "”larger” updates, we’ll continue to do so in the future. You ...
