List of changesets and updating work
The updated version have the same feature-set as described in the previous post.
For RTM, the plan is to update Sidekicks to expose additional functionality new to 2010; if you have any additional wishes now is the time for the feedback – drop us an email at tfs_at_attrice_dot_info.
Caveat that applies to the usage of Users View Sidekick – retrieving user names through TFS OM API may potentially take quite a long time.
Open Street Map is the free and editable map of the world, created and maintained by a huge international community.
Contributors live all over the world, so there are discussions happening at all hours of the day.
Our core development meeting is every Wednesday at UTC in the #core channel on Slack.
You can learn more about debugging and how to use it efficiently from our previous posts “How to debug step-by-step with MSBuild Sidekick” and “How to review Properties & Items while debugging with MSBuild Sidekick”. It’d be great if you email us about your user experience, found bugs and new feature requests.
We are happy to announce a release of MSBuild Sidekick v3, supporting full range of MSBuild versions from 2.0 to 4.0. You don’t need to uninstall previous MSBuild Sidekick version, and no license is required for the beta (the beta expires on ). Final version MSBuild Sidekick v3 will be released after Visual Studio 2010 RTM.
Sidekick works around known limitation in TFS version control, where it displays only user names for item history or other version control dialogs.
MSBuild is powerful general purpose build engine, but what if you have a dedicated build server running Team Foundation Server Build?
Did you know that you can execute Team Build projects locally and even debug them with MSBuild Sidekick?
For 2012 we support both stand-alone client application and Visual Studio integration package; the latter uses VS 2012 extension registration mechanism and is available through VS Extensions Manager.
Note that there are separate installations for stand-alone app and VS package.
