Pre-reqs for Team Foundation Server 15

A couple of aspects of this have come up on the post where I announced the TFS 15 RC1 and I thought it was worth a more explicit call out.  First some context. We have 2 release "types" for TFS - major releases (TFS 2013, TFS 2015, TFS 15, etc.) and Updates (TFS 2015 Update 1, TFS 2015 Update 2, ...).  We think about them very differently ...

What I missed while I was relaxing this summer

I missed blogging about a ton of stuff that happened in late June and most of July while I was out.  I'm not going to try to recap is all.  You can find lots of it on the Visual Studio ALM blog or in the Team Services release notes.  I do want to highlight a few things though. Hopefully, now that I'm back, I'll be able ...

TFS 2015 Update 2.1 is available

We have released Team Foundation Server 2015 Update 2.1. The KB article has a full list of included bugs fixed (updated from the list I posted on my blog a couple of weeks ago).  I haven't done a full cross reference but I listed 25 bug fixes in my post and the KB article includes 28 so I'm assuming we added 3 more fixes since my ...

Update on TFS 2015 Update 2.1

Hmm, it's been a few days of reflection.  I don't think I expected my post on the bugs we were fixing in Update 2.1 to generate so many comments about other bugs that people are hitting.  Let me share some questions that have been on my mind and my thoughts on them... Why did I get so many bugs reported as comments on my blog? In the end, my...

10th anniversary of Team Foundation Server

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the day we shipped the first version of TFS - TFS 2005.  It doesn't seem that long ago but we sure have come a long way.  The other day I recorded a Radio TFS interview with Martin Woodward and Greg Duncan.  Check it out if you are interested.  I have to admit I haven't listened to it.  I never listen ...
