TFS 2017 Update 3 RC is available

Today we released the Release Candidate for Team Foundation Server 2017 Update 3.  Following the pattern of all of our Update 3 releases, TFS 2017 Update 3 is a small release, focused on bug fixes – mostly a roll up of fixes for issues that we’ve uncovered as increasing numbers of customers have adopted the TFS 2017 wave of releases.  In all, Update 3 has a few dozen bug fixes (see the release notes for details).  Because of its narrow scope we anticipate that this RC will be the only Release Candidate and will strive to ship the final release within a month or so.

Update 3 will likely be the final Update in the TFS 2017 family.  We have already released the first RC for TFS 2018, with RC2 coming soon and the final release scheduled for later this year.

If you are on TFS 2017, Update 3 will be a good and safe upgrade that will address issues you might hit.  We’d appreciate if you’d give the RC a try to help us find any final issues before we ship it.  Upgrades from the RC to the final release will, of course, be supported.
