Multi-line test steps available in Microsoft Test Manager

without comments

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.

New VM for testing out TFS and Visual Studio Dev11

without comments

Brian Keller has done it again! To help us all get to try out the Dev11 tools quick and easy he has put to together a VM with the Visual Studio and TFS tools.

And not only is the Dev11 bits on the machine, there’s also a demo project and sample data install. Plus a number of hands-on labs! From Brian’s post:

There are six hands-on-labs for you to take a scripted approach towards learning this content. These labs double as demo scripts in case you want to show off these features to others:
