Matt Mitrik, program manager for TFS migration and synchronization toolkit, has announced the release of version 1.0. Note that it also includes the source code so that you can extend it as well.
Check it out!
- V1.0 of the Migration and Synchronization Toolkit has been released!
The first complete version of the Migration and Synchronization Toolkit has been released on CodePlex! To get the latest source code, including the complete reference implementations, please visit the CodePlex page for the Toolkit: http://www.codeplex.com/MigrationSyncToolkit
- In addition to updating the source code and reference implementations, a significant amount of new documentation has been added. From the home page of the CodePlex project, there are links to pages to help users getting started, define the features, and provide guidance of building a tool, just to name a few. Over the next few weeks, we will be adding to the content on the wikis, including some user feedback from our pilot programs for the toolkit.
- Please also remember to give us feedback! Any comments on the usage of the toolkit, questions about writing tools, questions on using the tools, and comments on the documentation are all welcomed. All the feedback that we can get will ultimately help to improve the Toolkit, so please speak up if you have any comments.
- Since the prerelease version, we've seen many requests for various tools to help migrate and synchronize data between version control and work item/bug tracking systems. Part of the motivation behind this toolkit was to encourage community development of tools for common systems used by TFS users and potential TFS users. If you are interested in starting an open/shared source project to develop a tool, please let us know, and we can help to get a project started on CodePlex.
