Community TFS 2010 Build Extensions–September Release

 

The Community TFS Build Extensions just released a new version, these are a set of Team Build WF Activities that will ease the work of build masters. It has a over 100 activities that range from file activities, VMs (Hyper-V and Virtual PC, TFS objects manipulation, VB6 compiling, IIS7, code metrics, stylecop,assembly info file manipulation and powershell execution  (to name just a few).

You can read announcement in Mike Fourie’s post.

The maintainers were foolish enough to include in the latest release an activity that I wrote to build and deploy code using Visual Studio, but that is material for a soon to be published blog post.

You can go to the Codeplex project site to download the binaries or the source code.

Meanwhile…

 

While everyone seems to be downloading the Windows 8 developer preview from http://dev.windows.com I’m downloading Visual Studio 11 developers preview and TFS 11 developers preview from MSDN. Smile (only for registered subscribers)

Go get it

[Update] Brian Keller just posted the hyper-v images with Dev11 pre installed including hands on labs. You can read more here
