Forks – the ability to create a server-side copy of a Git repository – is rolling out across Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and available in TFS 2018 RC1 as a public preview. In VSTS, you won’t have to do anything to turn it on,

New features and UI changes naturally get a lot of attention. Today, I want to spotlight the less visible work that we do on Team Services: ensuring our performance and scale meet our customers’ needs now and in the future. We are constantly working behind the scenes profiling,
This is the third and final post in a series covering strategies for versioning a NuGet package. If you missed part 1 or part 2, you should read those first. Today’s post walks through a specific workflow that Git users could adopt,
This is part 2 in a series of blog posts covering strategies for versioning a NuGet package. If you missed part 1, pick it up here. Today’s post talks about future improvements we’d like to make to the versioning and releasing flows.
On the Package Management team, we’re frequently asked how to think about versioning packages. Conceptually, it’s simple: NuGet (like many package managers) prefers semantic versioning (SemVer), which describes a release in terms of its backwards-compatibility with the last release.
