With this update, Azure Pipelines supports test attachments bigger than 100MB in size, which means you can now upload big files like crash dumps or videos with failed tests, aiding your troubleshooting experience.
We've been recommending for a while that customers use the open source tools Selenium and Appium tools, therefore the Visual Studio 2019 release marks their final deprecation.

We plan on closing down the corresponding Azure DevOps cloud-based load testing service on March 31st, 2020.
Keeping the pipeline healthy and making it effective is KEY to your DevOps ongoing journey. Some time back we introduced Analytics in Azure Pipeline with Top failing tests report to help you do just that.
I’m excited to share the new navigation we’re working on for Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) to modernize the user experience and give you more flexibility.

As you are already aware, we announced the plan for deprecating XAML builds sometime back.
TFS 2018 RC1 is now available and with that XAML builds are no longer supported. Consequently, Lab Management and automated testing capabilities in Microsoft Test Manager (MTM) are no longer supported starting from TFS 2018 RC1.
MSTest V2 has crossed 1 Million downloads. Congratulations! Hats off to the community! MSTest V2 is seeing robust usage. We ourselves use it heavily. If you are still using an earlier version of the MSTest framework, we encourage you to upgrade.
Having executed a test – at a minimum – we want to know the outcome. But beyond that, we may want to know more. Data collectors and loggers are the key extension mechanisms intended to provide this and other such details for rich reporting.
