September version (1.3) of the Power Tool for TFS 2005 is now available for download.
This release includes new features:
- Team Foundation Server Best Practice Analyzer: This tool helps a TFS Administrator gather configuration information about TFS deployment, perform tests on a server, analyze test results and more. In addition, this tool can be used to perform these tasks:
- Determine configurations that differ from default, recommended, or required settings.
- Verify a TFS deployment is configured according to recommended best practices.
- WorkItem templates: supports the ability to create, apply, capture, and set default work item templates. Templates can be used to create or update work items, and they can automatically set field values.
This release is only compatible with Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server. Visual Studio 2008 support planned for release in few months.
