I have to say that when I wrote my post last week on TFS and VSO related licensing and packaging changes, I didn’t think I’d be writing another one quite so soon. But I found out that we’re disclosing the next set of changes this week to help people plan,
I want to share with you all a strange thing that we do. It’s unorthodox but has been very successful for us.
Teams change. People come. People go. People move around. Reorgs happen. This is a fact of life, particularly in any large organization,
As part of the 2015 wave of releases, in addition to the 2015 products and a 2013 Update 5, we are also releasing a VS 2012 Update 5 (not one for TFS 2012 though). This Update includes a few bug fixes.
Over the past year, we have been working to simplify licensing for Team Foundation Server and make things as straight forward as possible for customers to adopt it. This has included changes like the introduction of the Stakeholder plan for broad access to work items within the organization,
Today, we released Visual Studio 2015, .NET 4.6, Visual Studio 2013 Update 5 and Team Foundation Server 2013 Update 5. As I announced in a post a few weeks ago, Team Foundation Server 2015 is going to take just a bit longer (more on this in a minute),
I told you a week or so ago it would come quickly :) We’re deploying our Sprint 85 work now. As always, it will take a few days for it to make it across the entirety of the service.
You can find the details on the new capabilities in the release notes.
I wrote a post about a week ago announcing TFS 2015 RC2. Today, we released downloads for the rest of the languages, along with release notes. All the information in my previous post is still accurate and the links all point to the updated downloads.
As the release of TFS 2015 has approached, I’ve gotten a lot of compatibility questions. We were a little slow documenting the story but we have it now: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/Library/vs/alm/TFS/administer/requirements
The short story is the TFS 2015 compat matrix is about the same at the TFS 2013 one was –
I’m a bit late on this post. It’s been a busy week of travel.
Last week we began deploying our sprint 84 release. Because of the logistics around finalizing our TFS 2015 release, it was delayed a bit. Sprint 83 is actually the last sprint that went into TFS 2015 RTM and we wanted to keep it live on the service longer while we iterated on the remaining bug fixes.
Today we released Release Candidate 2 of Team Foundation Server 2015. I believe this release is VERY close to the final bits we will ship. I’d encourage people to try out upgrades on production backups, pre-production environments and, production environments. We will support you regardless of the path you choose.
