without comments

As planned Mike Fourie published the January 2013 release of the Community TFS Build Extensions. This must-have pack of TFS build extensions has now gotten another set of new features added as well as issues fixed.

Release notes

The January 2013 release contains

  • VS2010 Activities(target .NET 4.0)

  • Community TFS Build Manager VS2012

The Community TFS Build Manager can also be found in the Visual Studio Gallery here where updates will first become available. A version supporting VS2010 is also available in the Gallery. Please note that we only intend to fix major bugs in the 2010 version and will concentrate our efforts on the 2012 version of the TFS Build Manager.
