Microsoft last week released the final version of Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2015, the company's on-premises application lifecycle management (ALM), DevOps and development team collaboration tool. Although this release provides a range of new capabilities throughout the development process, special emphasis has been placed on DevOps. TFS covers the entire application life cycle, providing source code management via Team Foundation Version Control or Git, reporting, requirements management, project management, automated builds, lab management, testing and release management capabilities. Microsoft made several improvements to the Agile project management capabilities in TFS, including hierarchical backlog management, customizable cards, swim lanes, definition of done, split columns, inline edit, search and filter and more, said Brian Harry, Microsoft's Developer Division corporate vice president in charge of Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio Online, in a blog post. Also in this release, Microsoft added the ability to make a quick edit to a file in version control directly from a Web browser and then commit those changes straight back to the service. This slide show looks at some of the new features in TFS 2015.
