Today we finished the deployment for sprint 61. You can read the service news to see what’s new. A lot more new code was deployed than is apparent. We’re gearing up for some big announcements in April and May – expect to hear more in that timeframe.
You can download Team Explorer Everywhere 2013 Update 1 (version 12.0.1) from the Download Center or install the TFS plug-in for Eclipse from directly within your Eclipse IDE (update site URL: http://dl.microsoft.com/eclipse/tfs).
Improvements in Update 1 include…
Build support for Java projects in Git (and more)
The VS Online service blog describes new capabilities we just delivered on the service for building Java projects managed in Git.
***UPDATED*** June 2014 – The early adopter program ended in may and the data export capability described below expired on May 20th.

Yesterday, we completed our sprint 60 deployment. With it comes two new features: Exporting test plans as HTML documents and a permission to control who can create new work item tags. You can read more about the new features on the service release notes here: http://www.visualstudio.com/news/2014-feb-10-vso.
In the fall, we introduced a preview of a new VS Online service called “Application Insights” that enables you to instrument your app to ensure that it is available, performing and successful. It combines APM capabilities with usage analysis, aimed at developers to help them create the best possible apps.
Today, fast on the heels of Update 1, we released the first CTP of VS/TFS 2013 Update 2. Although Update 1 was a pretty small release, Update 2 is much larger. This CTP is *not* feature complete and it is *not* “go-live”.
OK, that took much longer than it should have – way too much red tape for this, unfortunately, but the management pack for TFS 2013 is now available. I’ve been getting emails, blog comments and other forms of queries for months asking about it and it’s finally here.
