Yesterday, Brian Harry announced the availability of the TFS Powertoys as a separate download.
Before, the powertoys were available in the Windows SDK which was a biggie if you wanted to download and install 🙂
In this download a few new, really nice, features are included:
- tftp bind
This is a command line tool which will help you rebuild all source bindings after you upgraded a sourcesafe database to TFS
- tftp query and workitem
This is a command line tool which enabled you to query and edit workitems, making it possible to do this through scripting.
This tool is available in Visual Studio and from the command line. It gives you insight in the history of your code. You are able to see who last changed a specific section of code. This should be a really nice tool!
Enables you to compare folder structure in TFS Source Control. It's available from the Visual Studio IDE and the command line.
You can read a more thorough explanation of these features at Brian Harry's blog, click here
