TFS 2017 Update 2 RC2 is available

Today we shipped the second release candidate for TFS 2017.2.

The main differences between RC1 and RC2 are:

  • A bunch of bug fixes
  • All the localized versions are now available

At this point, we only know of a couple of dozen bugs that we need to fix before the final release.  This is a go-live release and, if you are planning to move to Update 2 at some point, I’d sure appreciate you installing this and trying it and letting us know if you hit any issues.  The final release, assuming all goes well, should be within a month.

Update 2 will be the last “big” feature release for TFS 2017.  We plan to ship the first preview of TFS v.next in August.  Stay tuned for more info on that.  We will, likely, have a TFS 2017.3 at some point with a roll up of fixes for any additional reported bugs.
