Stakeholder license is live
About 6 weeks ago, I announced a plan to make some licensing changes to VS Online and Team Foundation Server that would make it easier for more people to participate in the development process. A few weeks ago, we did part 1 by enabling Test Hub access for VS Online Advanced licenses. Today we have completed step 2 by enabling the new Stakeholder license allowing an unlimited # of people in each account significant access to the work item tracking and Agile planning capabilities, at no charge. You can read my news announcement here: http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/news/2014-aug-27-vso.
The final step in this wave of changes will happen in TFS 2013 Update 4, later this year, when we enable the Stakeholder license changes in our on-premises product.
Thanks and let us know if we can help you.
