November power tools release for TFS 2012

Buck Hodges

Today we published a new release of the power tools for TFS 2012 Update 1. This includes important fixes for the backup/restore power tool to be compatible with the release of TFS 2012 Update 1. We did a lot of refactoring of the server DLLs for the cloud service,, and we needed to update the backup/restore power tool in particular as a result.

The one new thing we added in this release is x64 support for the PowerShell scripts.

Beyond that, we fixed a number of bugs, most notably performance issues for the team members feature.
