Beta 3 refresh released


Beta 3 of TFS has now been released and should be available on MSDN today (or very soon :-).  The differences between beta 3 and beta 3 refresh are small for most things.  Jeff Beehler wrote about some of the beta 3 refresh differences two weeks ago.  The most important reason for the beta 3 refresh is that it is built against and uses all of the final release versions of Visual Studio 2005, .NET 2.0, and SQL Server 2005.  Beyond that, many of the fixes in it were to enhance the setup experience and to address a few localization issues.  So, if you are wondering whether some particular bug is fixed, the answer is most likely to be no, with the exception of some issues that Jeff mentioned.

If you have beta 3 installed, you’ll want to read the following guide to succesfully upgrade without losing your existing data.

    Buck,

    Can you make sure that whoever wrote the refresh update instructions knows that SQL Server Standard Edition does not work with doing the upgrade?

    See the posts on the forum with respect to error 28704. Workaround is to install Enterprise or Developer edition of SQL Server.
