As a follow up to my post yesterday on the Feature timeline refresh, I took a few minutes this morning to walk through our UserVoice site and summarize how the work we are planning over the next several months relates. This is a different granularity cut (because it’s based on UV suggestions) that what I published yesterday.
With the TFS 2015 release behind us and a lot of planning for our next phase of work completed, it’s time to do a major refresh of our Visual Studio Online Features Timeline. If you aren’t familiar with this page, I encourage you to check it out.
This week we released the final build of VS 2012 Update 5. You can get it on the Visual Studio downloads page. There are only a few changes in it. You can find them in the VS 2012 Update 5 KB article.
At least once or twice a week, I’m getting questions about where the TFS 2015 installation guidance is. We’re not doing well with search engines on that apparently. We’re going to see if we can do better but, in the mean time,
Today we released the TFS 2015 Power Tools that accompany VS 2015 and TFS 2015. The landing page that link points to includes lots of info about compatibility, changes, etc.
Sorry it took a bit longer to get these out than we expected.
This week we are rolling out our sprint 87 work. Nothing earth shattering this sprint but some nice project management improvements. Also we’ve added first class SonarQube support now with custom tasks for executing SonarQube and publishing the results for your build.
Managing requirements is an incredibly important part of the software development process for everyone. Different teams approach the problem very differently – from very lightweight/informal ways to very formal and documented ways. The needs of your business and the culture of your organization will determine what’s right for you.
This week we are rolling out our Sprint 86 work. You can read details on the VSO release notes. Included is the next set of work to improve our Agile planning experiences and availability of a NuGet package for our TFS/VSO SDK.
Today we released the final version of Team Foundation Server 2015. TFS 2015 is a major step forward, with tons of improvements throughout the development process but with special emphasis on DevOps capabilities.
