  • Localization issue for custom work items layout states.
  • Localization issue in email notification template.
  • Issue with console logs getting truncated when there are multiple identical links in a row.

    Are there any details on what features will be included in Azure DevOps Server 2022? I feel like that the Azure DevOps Feature timeline is pretty much useless for us who use the server version since all the features availability information concerning the server version is only mentioned as “Future”, “TBD” or “N/A”.

    This means that I can not communicate with our users in our organization when for example the new and improved Delivery Plans will be available for them. I just have no idea, and also me and my team can not plan for when we are going to upgrade.

    Please, do improve your communications regarding the new feature availability for the Azure DevOps Server version. The lack of information makes me feel like that the server version might have been forgotten about and perhaps might be abandoned soon. It also seems to me that Microsoft’s focus on Azure DevOps Server is only including bug fixes and security fixes – which of course is great – but it is not the only thing that we want. We also need new features, and our users are really requesting these – for example Delivery Plans.

    HI Gloridel,

    I am encountering an issue with attempting to apply the Azure DevOps Server 2020 Update 1, Patch 3. While my issue is similar to previously reported; we are current running Azure DevOps Server 2020 Update 1 Patch 1, where others may not have been. Patch 3 is reporting that it does not apply to our environment.
    The other posts indicate to re-apply Azure DevOps server 2020.1.1; but are concerned it will remove Patch 1.

    Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Framework.Server.dll under the install path does show as version: 18.181.31402.2

    Patch version information below.
