I am pleased to announce that the first community tech preview of the TFS Administration Tool 2.0 has been released. You can download it from the TFS Administration Tool project site.
We have had the source code lying around in the source tree for some time and our initial plan was to release the new version of the tool during autumn. Since our initial schedule has slipped, and many users asked about support for Team Foundation Server 2010 Beta 2 after it has been released, we have decided to delay the release a bit more.
The last couple of weeks the team has worked very hard in order to add support for Team Foundation Server 2010 Beta 2. With this release we wanted to support all versions of Team Foundation Server (2005, 2008, 2010 Beta 2), so we built the tool with the Team Foundation Server 2008 object model. Team Explorer 2008 Service Pack 1 is all you need to install and use TFS Administration Tool 2.0 CTP with all available versions of Team Foundation Server.
Features included in this release:
- Support for available versions of Team Foundation Server (2005, 2008, 2010 Beta 2)
- Multiple simultaneous server connection
- Bulk edit of users
- New user interface
- Application tracing
Below I have included a screenshot of the tool to give you an idea of the new user interface:
Please download the tool and try it out with your Team Foundation Server. The team would like to hear your feedback/suggestions about the tool and the new user interface. In case you run into any issues or you would like to a new feature please feel free to file a work item.
Thanks for your help!
