In thy face I see the map of honor, truth, and loyalty (and VS Dev tools)

While I don’t frequently suggest people study my face, I do suggest that antsy developers interested in discovering what’s around the bend take a look at our Visual Studio developer tools roadmap at:

Ton’s of cool stuff pending in the Orcas and Rosario Viusal Studio releases and yes, it’s OK to say Rosario outside of the MS big house, and in polite society.

Here are a few of my favorites, cherry picked for your edification:


  • Web access to TFS

  • Code metrics to show cyclomatic complexity calculations

  • Support multi-threaded builds with the new MSBuild.

  • Build queuing and queue management

  • Destroy- The version control destroy operation provides administrators with the ability to remove files and folders from the version control system


  • Joint prioritization and management of IT projects through integration with Microsoft Project Server

  • Project management across multiple projects for proactively load balancing resources according to business priorities

  • Full traceability (inc. hierarchical work items) to track project deliverables against business requirements and the ability to conduct rapid impact analysis of proposed changes
