I don't usually like to pass on what others have blogged, but this release of the "Team Foundation Power Tools" is pretty slick, including:
- Find in Source Control
- "Quick Label"
- Open In Windows Explorer (i.e., open Windows Explorer using a right-click in the Source Control Explorer window)
- Team Build notification (desktop tray)
- TFPT command line enhancements (e.g., DestroyWI and DestroyWITD)
- TFS 2008 Support - including an updated "Best Practices Analyzer" and "Process Template Editor"
The caveat is that this is for Visual Studio 2008... so if you needed another excuse to upgrade, here it is! :)
Ed Hintz blogged more details on the release which can be downloaded from here.
If you're in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and are an avid Visual Studio Team System User, you'll be interested in a new users group. I presented at the Dallas VSTS Users Group inaugural meeting last night. It was a small group (12) of interested, engaged and experienced VSTS users, admins and consultants. Perhaps more interesting that the topic were all of the side discussions we had - everything from system architecture to licensing to assorted tips and tricks.
Again, if you're in the area, look us up at www.dallasvsts.com. If you not from the area - consider moving ;)
