The updated Team Foundation Power Toy (TFPT) released on 9/7. It includes 12 powertoys – they are:
Unshelve – adds merge capability to the existing Unshelve command
Rollback – allows you to undo a checkin of a changeset
Online – allows syncing of files that you’ve edited while not connected to a server
GetCS – gets all the items listed in a specific changeset
UU – undo unchanged. Undo checkout with a check for what’s actually unchanged
Review – code review tool, review files in any order you choose
History – display version history of a file, folder or branch
Workitem – create, view or update a work item from the command line
Query – run a work item query and display the results
Bind – convert VSS-bound solutions into TFS-bound solutions
TreeDiff – Compare folders and reconcile differences
Annotate – show who last changed a section of code
TreeDiff, annotate, workitem and query, and bind are four new power toys that I am really excited about. Tree diff is a very frequently requested feature and annotate just makes life easier. Workitem and query make accessing workitems from the command line easier. Bind will convert VSS bindings to TFS bindings after a VSS conversion to TFS.
The best part is that it’s a stand-alone download. No longer will you have to install a 300MB package to get tfpt.
