Today we deployed the latest version of the CodePlex software. We’re excited to bring you several new features in this deployment.
My Favorite Projects
Our #2 most requested feature is Favorite Projects, where users can mark a project as a favorite
and have it appear on their profile page.
The comments in the Favorites Project feature request suggest adding a RSS feed for the favorite projects list. Let me know what sort of activity you are interested in receiving via RSS regarding your favorite projects.
New Profile Pages
You may have noticed from the above picture that the profile pages look a little different. In order to add the My Favorite Projects feature and to finish up the Work Item Email Notifications feature, we needed to redesign the profile pages. The most notable design change to the profile pages is separating the “public view” from the “edit your info” page.
Let us know what you think of the new profile pages.
Source Code Diff Tools (Beta)
Finally, in this deployment, we’re introducing new feature that’s in “Beta” right now.
It’s your standard file diff’ing tool that’s available at the file level of each changeset.
I know it is much more interesting to see at the changeset level which files have been changed, and then drill down into how those files have been changed. However, living the agile life, I wanted to first get the basic ability to diff files out there to collect feedback on it.
