What’s changed?

Looking at the check-in comments, we have a substantial amount of features and bug fixes added in this release.

  • Important changes

    • DB project is converted to use DBPro GDR R2

    • New WorkFlowType is introduced in toolkit.

    • Toolkit is backward compatible (support for old work flow types persisted in DB), but doesn't support importing a new configuration file with old work flow type

  • Toolkit

  • Adaptersj0444214

    • Wit adapter: add project-scope context to query base

    • Fixes two problems in the SyncMonitorProvider implementation in the WIT adapters:

      • Correctly issues the WIQL query with [TeamProject] == @Project

      • Handles the case where the version string stored for a TFS work item has a string that's not an integer (e.g. "Attachment")

  • Guidance

    • Revised hands-on labs and documentation to align with codebase and to take advantage of new features.

    • The following documentation has been revised:

      • TFS Integration Platform - Architecture Overview

      • TFS Integration Platform - Custom Adapter POC

      • TFS Integration Platform - Getting Started

      • TFS Integration Platform - Migration Guidance

      • TFS Integration Platform - Planning Poster

In parallel we are making great progress at a number of migration proof-of-concepts, which are going to bring a wealth of features, administrative support and new adapter provider support to the platform. Watch the space!
