Multi-line test steps available in Microsoft Test Manager

A new patch for Visual Studio 2010 and MTM 2010 is now available that among other things brings a multi-line control to the MTM test step editor! This is a top request from most testes I’ve talked to so great to see it’s made it into the product in this release!

The patch is also gives improved support for the hosted TFS Preview (“TFS on Azure”) so if you’re using VS 2010 against the TFS Azure service you should get this update too.
