Brian Harry posted a new article on his blog tonight teasing us all on the upcoming October release of the Team Foundation Server Power tools. Normally I wouldn’t bother too much about posting stuff that isn’t available, but HOLY COW, there are a couple of features coming in these power tools that make me really excited (Yes, I’m a Geek, VSTS stuff is exciting to me!)
The specific bullet that caught me is here:
Windows Shell Extension - We've built a Windows shell extension that allows you to do the core version control operations directly inside the Windows Explorer without using the Team Explorer.
This is COOL. If you use TFS for your source control, you know that it can sometimes be a pain to interact with it outside of the IDE.
Anyway, just had to share.
