TFSBuildManager

For anyone managing multiple build types within Team Foundation Server's Team Build service, you've probably come to realize there are several shortcomings in v1.0.  For example, there's nothing in the IDE that lets you stop a running build for delete completed builds.

Although I've built a couple of utilities on my own to alleviate some of these issues there is now a project on CodePlex which handles these issues very nicely (and looks way cooler than anything I've written for these tasks :-) - TFSBuildManager.

TFSBuildManager has the following features:

  • Start, stop a build
  • Change build/s quality
  • Delete, backup build/s
  • Edit build type

The project is in it's first release but is still very useful.  Click here for some screen shots.
