Team Foundation Server - July 2008 Power Tools

The VSTS team has delivered the latest set of Power Tools for Team Foundation Server. I'll post the list of things included below, but one thing I wanted to point out is that we FINALLY have a way to run the TFS SharePoint extensions in a 64-bit environment! WOO HOO. The WssExt64Bit installer that is included with the Power Tools will now allow you to integrate TFS into 64-bit SharePoint/WSS environments. This will be well received news for those trying to eek out the best possible performance and memory utilization from TFS and WSS integration.

Included in the Power Tools release: (From the Downloads Readme Page)
