TFS Power Tools – July 2008 Release

The July 2008 release of the Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server Power Tools has just been released.  Here is a summarized list of what is included with the tools:

  • Command line tool (TFPT.EXE)
  • Team Explorer IDE menu additions
  • Build Notification tool
  • TFS Best Practices Analyzer
  • Process Template Editor
  • Work Item Templates
  • Custom check-in policies
  • TFS Server Manager
  • TFS Users tool
  • Alert Editor

One of the more exciting changes, from my point of view, is the new user interface for managing TFS Alerts.  It is going to be nice having this capability available directly from within the IDE.

For a more detailed look at what’s included, take a look at this post from Brian Harry.
