A few more Visual Studio 2013 Preview features

I recently announced the availability of the Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server 2013 previews.  There are a couple of new features available with this preview that I’d like to talk a bit more about. Cloud Load Testing Now that the Preview is available, you can try out our new cloud load testing experience.  We’...

Visual Studio 2012.3 is released

Today we officially released Visual Studio 2012.3 and Team Foundation Server 2012.3.  All in all, these are small releases, mostly containing high priority bug fixes and a few changes to improve the compatibility/interop story with VS 2013.  You can read all about it in the KB article or download it here: http://go.microsoft.com/...

An update on the forums refresh

As with any significant change, there is a period of “burn in” the tune it. I want to thank everyone who has already provided feedback and ask that you please keep it coming. We’ve already released an update with some improvements for the “easy stuff” and the team has created a backlog for the next sprint to ...

Enterprise grade Git

In my Visual Studio 2013 post from TechEd a couple of weeks ago, I made a very innocuous comment about including Git support in our TFS 2013 preview that will ship next week (at the Build conference).  I wanted to take a few minutes to expand upon it. We first introduced Git support as a VS 2012 VSIX for Visual Studio and server side ...

Team Foundation Service Update – June 19

Today we updated the service with our sprint 49 work.  You can read the details of the significant improvements on the news blog.  In the grand scheme of things, it’s a comparatively small update.  We released so much on Jun 3rd for TechEd, there’s just not a lot of new stuff to show :) Two areas worth mentioning are...

Excuse me sir, your cow is stuck in the mud

I try to share some of the funnier and stranger stories from my life.  Unfortunately, I don’t always remember to share them. I’m working from home today because I’ve got an all day phone call with people in Redmond.  As I was sitting and waiting for my meeting to start this morning, the phone rang.  It was the camp ...

VS 2013 round tripping

In VS 2012, we introduced the notion of “round-tripping”.  This meant the ability for VS 2012 to load and save VS 2010 compatible solutions/projects.  That was a huge customer ask and I’ve heard a lot of feedback since then that customers rely on it. At TechEd this week, I was asked what the story with 2013 would be...
