If you’ve been using and/or following Visual Studio Online and/or Team Foundation Server, you’re likely already familiar with the Features Timeline published by Microsoft. For those not familiar, it is essentially a running history of features that have been delivered … Continue reading →

Microsoft officials say there are about 450,000, or 30 percent of its total registered Windows 10 Insiders, actively testing the next Windows release .
One of the many new features in AngularJS 1.3 is the ability to reuse validation messages. When displaying validation messages, you may find that you often reuse very similar messages: “Class name must be entered.” “Start date must be entered.” “End date must be entered.” Wouldn’t it be nice if you could reuse error messages […]
We are always working on ways to communicate more effectively with customers about what we have done, what people like and don’t like, what they want, what we’re planning, etc. A year or so ago we added a Features Timeline page to our News section of visualstudio.com as one step in that journey. The news section, for VS Online particularly, announces the new features that we’ve deployed each sprint. The Features Timeline then maps those new features to the on-premises TFS release you can find them in. Here’s an example snippet:
At the same time, it’s all backward looking – stuff we’ve already done and how you can get access to it. The best forward looking vehicle we have is UserVoice. It’s great for submitting suggestions and voting on others but trickier to get a clear picture of the things we are planning/working on. Many of the things we do are in UserVoice suggestions but some aren’t. Today we updated our Features Timeline page with a new “Features under development” section.

This week we are deploying our sprint 75 results. You can read details on the VS Online release notes. For whatever confluence of reasons, a lot of things came together in this sprint an there’s a ton of new stuff that I think you will like. One of my personal favorites is the updated Wiki/Welcome page experience. It’s now incredibly easy to create and update Wiki pages using markdown in VS Online. I encourage you to check it out. This is the last deployment of this year. In fact, we’ll be honoring our tradition of skipping the
deployment that overlaps heavily with Christmas/New Years. The result is that the next sprint deployment will be in late January. Have a happy holidays for those of you that celebrate this time of year and a great couple of weeks for those of you that don’t :). Brian...(Read whole news on source site)
and runs build scripts to generate application binaries. The CLI also provides a common interface to apply plugins to your applications. Let us see how Visual Studio uses the Cordova CLI while building such application. How does VS combine with Cordova CLI to build my multi device hybrid application? Once you create a new Cordova project in Visual Studio, you see the layout as shown on the left side of the following illustration. To leverage the Cordova CLI from the Visual Studio project structure, Visual Studio uses a CLI pre-processor called vs-mda. The goal behind vs-mda is to pre-process the Visual Studio...(Read whole news on source site)
I have recently been doing a lot of migrations and Willy asked me to write a white-paper about understanding TFS migrations from on-premise to Visual Studio Online. The post Understanding TFS migrations from on-premise to Visual Studio Online appeared first on naked ALM - Experts in ALM, TFS & lean-agile with Scrum.
