Team Foundation Power Tools for VS2008

For those of you who have made the leap to Visual Studio 2008 and are using Team Foundations Server you may be pleased to know that there are a new set of power tools to help bridge some of those functionality gaps. Instead of recompiling the existing power tools for 2008 the development team at Microsoft have decided to create a new set of tool specifically aimed at 2008.

The new power tools include the following;

  • Find In Source Control
    The ability to search source code from within the source safe database
  • Team Build Notification
    Using this tool, which sits in the system tray, you can be notified of when specified builds are queued, started etc
  • Updated Best Practices Analyzer

Plus many more updates.
