Visual Studio Online Update – Oct 8th

Another post I missed last week was an announcement about our sprint 89 deployment for VS Online.  You can read the release notes for details.

Probably the biggest thing is support for Active Directory group support for managing permissions.  This as been a very common request from our larger customers in VSO so they don’t need to maintain shadow groups in VSO and AAD.

Another very notable thing is the preview of a new work item form.  We are trying to improve the layout to make it “cleaner”, more extensible (setting us up for a good process customization story on the service) and richer.  What you see now is still very early and I expect lots of changes.  We appreciate any feedback you have though.  For now, you can choose either to use the existing form layout or the preview.
