July CTP for Team Foundation is headed your way


Rob Caron just posted that the July CTP is making its way through MSDN now.  As Rob points out, be sure to check out the Known Issues and Readme pages.

One of the things that held up the release was we spent Monday trying to figure out why the communication between the source control mid-tier and client was terrible.  Downloads were taking forever, as were large web service responses.  We thought it might be a bug in our code or a bug in the framework.  At the end of a long day, it turned out that the duplex settings for the network cards in the test machines were wrong, causing dropped packets.  Evidently the image used to set up the machines was wrong.

I’ve written about some of the July CTP changes before.  Try it out!

I’ve been experiencing problems w/Beta 2 trying to access the VSTS server, especially in trying to create new VSTS projects. For other operations, my somewhat successful workaround was to setup a VPN into the dev domain.

    Anyhow, I was wondering whether the dropping of ADAM would have any impact on this sort of deployment. Just to better deal w/this problem, I’m contemplating a migration from Beta 2 to the July CTP. Could you provide any guidance? THX!

    I’m not really sure whether this scenario will work better for you with the July CTP. It should work correctly by RTM, I believe.
