Time flies, and the end of mainstream support for Team Foundation Server 2010 is July 14th. Yep, we’re celebrating it on Bastille Day. If you are still using TFS 2010, now is a great time to upgrade to TFS 2013 Update 4.
Brian Keller has released a beta of the second version of his OData service. We are also working to bring it to TF Service, so stay tuned. Check out the beta and give him feedback!
OData Service for Team Foundation Server v2
Today we are releasing the beta of the OData Service for Team Foundation Server v2 along with a sample Windows Store application

Philip wrote a simple app to list the work items associated with the changesets for a given path, and it’s in some ways an enhanced update of Naren’s post.
Given an URL to a collection and a server path (e.g., $/myproject/coolthing),
Philip, a dev on version control, recently helped with a question on how to get the TFS objects we use in our UI. I thought I’d post since others may find it useful.
