Upcoming October Power Tools release – OMG!

I was just reading Brian Harry’s teaser blog post about what’s coming up with the October Power Tools release and I’ve got to say that I’m impressed.

As per Brian’s blog post they are looking at the following three major features;

  • Team Members – We’ve added a new node to the Team Explorer called “Team Members”.  It appears under each Team Project and is used to identify who are the people who work on the project.  It serves as a “pivot point” for information about and operations on people and teams.
  • 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.
  • PowerShell Support – We’ve started working on a PowerShell pipeline and commandlets for TFS.  Our initial set support basic version control operations but over time we plan to add work item tracking, administration, build and more.

Here’s one of the screenshots from to whet your appetite.

Make sure you read all the details on Brian’s blog post. If you’re a team system user today, you won’t help but be impressed.
