Team Foundation Server 2010 Power Tools (RTM)


Hot off the press – a release of the much anticipated Power Tools for Visual Studio/Team Foundation Server 2010 – April 2010 (RTM).  This release enables some of my favourite TFS goodness including:

  • Alerts Explorer,
  • Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 Best Practices Analyzer,
  • Custom Check-in Policy Pack,
  • Process Editor,
  • Team Explorer Enhancements*,
  • Team Foundation Power Tool (TFPT.EXE) Tool,
  • Team Members,
  • Windows PowerShell Cmdlets for Visual Studio Team System Team Foundation Server

and my favourite, Windows Shell integration**. 

What are you waiting for?  Go grab it!

* This tool provides additional Visual Studio menu options and functions to support finding files under version control by status or wildcard, opening a folder using
  Windows Explorer from the Source Control Explorer context menu, and labelling files and folders in Source Control Explorer.
 

** This tool provides integration with Windows Explorer and the common file dialogs. With this integration, you can perform many source control operations without having to
   run Visual Studio or a Team Foundation command-line tool.
