In the current version of Team System source control there is no support for "Rollback" functionality. Users that had previous experience with other source control systems (VSS for example) often looking for this feature.
The way to perform operation similar to VSS rollback in TS is: Get specific version from changeset previous to change you would like to rollback, check it out and then check it. It is not a very convenient way, but it is keeping history of the changes after doing rollback (which is usually good thing).
The other way to do it is using Power Toy...

Yesterday, I talked to Ed Glas from Microsoft. For those of you who don’t know, Ed is the group manager for VSTS load testing at Microsoft.

Sarit and I just landed in Redmond to participate in Team System Software Design Review. Tomorrow morning we start a 3 days of intensive sessions with members of VSTS development teams.

I hope results of following days work will influence the shape of the new version. It is an extremely interesting experience for us. We will do our best to pass forward requests, suggestions and complains we’ve collect from the many...

Even more, NUnit is a more complete unit testing environment because it is a mature product. However, if choosing to continue working with it, you end up losing a lot of the TFS capabilities, for example the integration...

There are cases where the default validation rules supplied by the tester framework are not sufficient. The good news is that you can customize a lot of areas in the framework, and one of them is the rule engine.
Last week I had to record a web site. The site was far from simple one. It was AJAX based and over SSL. I had to use fiddler for the recordings and then to customize the recording results. After doing so, I had to verify that the requests being made correspond to my expectations. To do so, I had to...
