Monday was the official launch for the TFS and VS 2010 releases! I highly recommend upgrading from TFS 2005 or TFS 2008 to TFS 2010. The number of new features in TFS 2010 is very long, and there are lots of posts on them.
Patrick Carnahan is a developer on TFS Build, and he’s written a series of detailed posts on how to write custom activities in Windows Workflow 4.0 (WF), which is now used to orchestrate the build process for TFS Build in 2010.
With Soma’s announcement today, Visual Studio and TFS 2010 Beta 2 are now available for download for MSDN subscribers. The most exciting part of the TFS 2010 Beta 2 release is the debut of TFS Basic. Brian Harry describes TFS Basic in detail in a post called TFS 2010 for SourceSafe Users.
Dennis Stone, a tester on Team Test, has posted a great walkthrough of using the new test impact feature of 2010. If you aren’t familiar with test impact, it’s a feature that tells you which tests execute the code you’ve changed in a checkin.
Beta 1 for TFS 2010, along with VS and VSTS, is now available to MSDN subscribers and will be available for broad download shortly. Be sure to check out the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 First Look site to see what’s in this release,
