Yesterday we announced the release of both Visual Studio 2017 and TFS 2017 Update 1.  I'll focus on TFS and you can read Julia's post on VS. ***UPDATE Mar 9*** The problems with upgrades from TFS versions before TFS 2015 have been fixed and the ...

If you're curious about what we are working on and when it is coming, I encourage you to go check it out.  This timeline is intended to give a rough idea what we are planning to deliver in the cloud over the next 6 months and when those things will ...
