VSTS Update – Oct 9

This week we are deploying our sprint 124 work.  You can get all the details in our release notes.

I’m running late this sprint so I’m going to keep my summary short.

The biggest change this release is in the work items and code search experiences.  We’ve significantly reworked the filtering UI to make it more intuitive and to provide more screen real estate for the results.  I like it a lot better.  I hope you do too.

Other than that, there are a pretty large number of smaller things.  Lots of really nice little improvements.  One of my favorites (because I’ve been asking for it for a long time :)) is the ability to “brand” your project description page with a bitmap to give make it a bit more personal and give it a little personality.  Next on my list in that vein is branding of the account home page but I’m getting ahead of myself. 🙂

As a reminder, none of this is going to show up in TFS 2018.  That release is locked down.  We’re preparing to ship our final release candidate.  The work we released to VSTS this sprint will first appear in TFS in one of the Updates.

I hope you like the improvements.  We are always looking for feedback.
