I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in our MSDN forums for Team Foundation Server over the past week (as I should have all along). It seems that forum activity has picked up quite a bit lately with the releases of Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Server 2008. To help with the extra load, I’m asking more of my test team members to participate in the forums on a regular basis. Hopefully you’ll see an improved turn-around for your questions.
In particular, I’d like to give a big thanks to all the members of the community out there who are chiming in with solutions on the forums. It’s great to see so many people passionate about TFS and helping other people to be successful with it. So… thanks!!
If you haven’t visited the forums, they’re a great way to get answers for your TFS issues, learn about tips and tricks, best practices, get feedback on your branching/merging strategies, etc. We also have a troubleshooting guide to help you through some of the more common problems.
One topic that has come up quite a lot recently is support for 64-bit Sharepoint and MOSS servers. Unfortunately, TFS 2008 does not support 64-bit versions of those products today. However, we are working on a Power Tool to correct this, and you should see it fairly soon.
