Major TFS Power Tools Release Is Coming

Brian Harry has posted a “teaser” on his blog outlining the next TFS Power Tools release.  There is some major new, cool and useful functionality being dropped.  They are looking at a late October 2008 timeframe.

This release has some excellent, new collaboration tools like integration with Live Messenger and Team Member based querying.  They have also written extension points that allow you to hook in your favorite IM program.

To make life even easier for those folks that work in a mixed environment (.Net, Java, PHP, etc) they have done some excellent Shell Integration.

I can’t do half as good a job explaining this as Brian, so go and read his post for all the new goodness.
