On the request of our Linux customers, we have shipped a new SSH build task that allows running commands or scripts on a remote server. This task is available on Visual Studio Team Services and will be available in the next release of Team Foundation Server for our on-premises customers.
Last month, we enabled support for PMD analysis in the Maven build task (see The Maven build task now supports PMD analysis out of the box). This is now the turn of Gradle.
PMD Analysis with Gradle
You can now request a PMD analysis in the Gradle build task using the new “Run PMD Analysis” checkbox which instructs Gradle to perform PMD static analysis
The build summary then reports the number of issues found by PMD.
A few months ago, Jeremy mentioned that SSH support for Git repos was in private preview. I’m happy to announce that it is now available to everyone in both TFS and Team Services. You can now connect to any Team Services repo using an SSH key,
Three releases (VS 2015 Update 3, Visual Studio “15” Preview 3, MSTest V2) featuring Test Platform components in as many months indicate a path best traced by starting from the present.

Validating application’s performance by running a load test typically follows a test->fix->test loop, often repeated several times. After you have run an initial load test and made some changes (either on the app side or test side by fixing issues or tweaking configurations),
When you are running your code and something is behaving unexpectedly, how do you find out what is going wrong? When I was in school the first way I learned how to debug a wonky application was by sticking “print()” statements all over the place,
Today we are rolling out a new image to the hosted build pool with the following updates:
.NET Core 1.0 with the Preview 2 tooling
Visual Studio 2015 Update 3
June 2016 SSDT for Visual Studio 2015
Lets Encrypt root certs for to JDK certificate store
Azure Service Fabric SDK 2.1
Due to a SxS issue any projects targeting the 2.0 version of the SDK will need to be updated to 2.1 to continuing working.
Team Services sprint 102 introduces a new build task, Jenkins Queue Job. Now your Team Foundation Server (TFS) builds can integrate with Jenkins to queue and monitor Jenkins jobs. The Jenkins Queue Job task is cross platform and does not require any additional build agent dependencies.
Team Services sprint 102 introduces a new build task, Archive Files. Use it to easily create archives during your Team Foundation Server (TFS) or Team Services continuous integration (CI) build process. The Archive Files task is cross platform and uses native zip,
You can now try Team Services paid extensions free for 30 days. No credit card required and no surprise charges after the trial ends. If the extension is a good fit for your team, pay for what you need and we’ll take care of the rest.
