Yesterday and today some big news was quite silently launched and published on the VS ALM blog which I’d like to share, because I think these kind of changes will make a huge difference in the daily life of software producing companies;
- Build vNext SonarQube tasks, to run SonarQube as part of a build: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/08/24/build-tasks-for-sonarqube-analysis.aspx
- Release Management vNext; the long awaited next version which provides a full-featured web-based client instead of the sluggish WPF client, all together with a complete new architecture; can’t wait! http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/08/26/release-management-vnext-plans.aspx
- Lab Management no longer as a separate part, not integrating with the new stuff, but features of Lab Management made available in TFS Build and Release Management: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/08/26/lab-management-evolution.aspx
- Proprietary package management inside TFS, e.g. to provide a way of component management: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/08/27/announcing-package-management-for-vso-tfs.aspx
- Upcoming new features in Agile project management (new Work Item form, custom fields and much more!): http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/08/27/agile-project-management-futures-august-2015.aspx
Love to see all of these features coming very soon!!
