Today we released the second CTP (community technology preview) of Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 and TFS 2013 Update 4.  You can read about the VS changes on the Visual Studio blog.  You can download the CTP.  Or you can check out the release notes.  Also here’s the link to the blog post I wrote on CTP1. TFS improvements in this CTP include: Work item performance improvements The ability to maximize the rich text editor and the comments on the history control Improve hyperlink experience
in the rich text editor Increased the number of items you can have in the first and last columns on the kanban board Addition of the “stakeholder” license change The addition of support for stakeholder licensing is certainly the largest change in this CTP.  You can read more about stakeholder licensing.  And you can go to the “Access Levels” tab in the TFS web access settings page in this CTP to see what it looks like.

Team Explorer Everywhere 2013.2 (Update 2)

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Today, we released Update 2 of Team Explorer Everywhere.  You can read details on Will’s blog post. I’ve been amazed lately how many people don’t know about Team Explorer Everywhere.  We’ve had it for a couple of years now.  It’s a really nice solution for Java/Eclipse users to use Team Foundation Server or Visual Studio Online.  It includes an Eclipse plugin and a command line both of which run on Windows, Mac or Linux.  I know quite a few customers who use it and like it but it continues to surprise me that, more often than not,
when I mention using TFS on a Mac or Linux, people say “Huh, you can do that?”. Now, I think there’s a but of “it’s our own fault” going on here.  I’ve recently been giving people here a bunch of grief because you have to work pretty hard to find anything about it on  I hope that will be fixed soon.  There is some content on getting started for Mac/Linux/Eclipse users but that’s about it – and it’s pretty shallow content. Also, on another thread we had a conversation (again) about long paths.  We added...(Read whole news on source site)

Lag ditt eget Visual Studio Gallery

Originally posted on: uken fikk ALM MVP Jakob Ehn sin nå snart ett år gamle blogpost om Visual Studio mer oppmerksomhet, da Greg Duncan skrev en blogpost på Channel9's Coding4Fun, "Hosting your own Visual Studio Gallery with the Inmeta Visual Studio Gallery".  Hvorfor er dette så interessant ? Visual Studio har utviklet seg til et meget bra utvidbart utviklingsmiljø. Det er veldig mye av Visual Studio’s funksjonalitet som kommer fra forskjellige utvidelser (extensions).  Flere av disse installeres når man installerer Visual Studio, men i tillegg kan man legge til
en mengde andre utvidelser.  Disse hentes i utgangspunktet fra Visual Studio Gallery, som er Microsoft sin plass for slike utvidelser.  Disse utvidelsene kommer både fra Micrsooft selv men i enda større grad fra andre individer og firmaer utenfor Microsoft. Hvem som helst kan legge opp utvidelser på Visual Studio Gallery, og de aller fleste utvidelsene er gratis. De utvidelsene som legges opp er i første rekke forskjellig typer funksjonalitet, som kalles Tools, men kan også være prosjekt eller item templates, Controls eller Storyboard Shapes. Et firma vil alltid ha en del funksjonalitet som er...(Read whole news on source site)

We have four releases today. First, Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 CTP 2 is available, including a few features (e.g. performance improvements for the Visual C++ browsing experience) and some bug fixes. Second, there’s also a CTP available for Team Foundation Server. The release notes have the complete list of features and fixes for both these releases. Third, we also released Team Explorer Everywhere 2013 Update 2, which, among other things, improves how TEE stores credentials (making sign on to Visual Studio Online much easier) and adds the capability to browse Git repositories within TEE. Will
Smythe has a full post here. Finally, we released the Visual Studio Tools for Unity (VSTU) 1.9.1 on the Visual Studio Gallery: VSTU for VS 2013, VSTU for VS 2012, and VSTU for VS 2010.

What is new in RavenDB 3.0: Operations–the nitty gritty details

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
After looking at all the pretty pictures, let us take a look at what we have available for us for behind the cover for ops. The first such change is abandoning performance counters. In 2.5, we reported a lot of our state through performance counters. However, while they are a standard tool and easy to work with using admin tools, they were also unworkable. We have had multiple times where RavenDB would hang because performance counters were corrupted, they require specific permissions and in general they were a lot of hassle. Instead of relying on performance counters, we are now using
the package to handle that. This gives us a lot more flexibility. We can now generate a lot more metrics, and we have. All of those are available in the /debug/metrics endpoint, and on the studio as well. Another major change we did was to consolidate all of the database administration details to a centralized location: Manage your server gives us all the tools we need to manage the databases on this server. You can manage permissions, backup and restore, watch what is going on and in general do admin style operations. In particular, note that we made it slightly...(Read whole news on source site)
