1Microsoft Designs Team Foundation Server 2015 for Agile, DevOps, ALM
Microsoft has overhauled the navigation of backlogs, letting you drill down into more levels, toggle the levels above your backlog on or off, differentiate between items your team owns, and reorder and reparent in every view. Now, from every backlog, you can drill down into more levels, all the way down to Tasks.
To help teams using Git improve the quality of code going into their repo, Microsoft added a new capability to set policies on branches. These new policies enable teams to configure requirements for their development branches that are enforced by the server when pushing or merging pull requests. You can prevent build breaks by using the build policy to require that all changes entering a branch must pass a configured build.

In the Web portal, the History hub under CODE has been updated to support a new view for Git projects. The new “Branch Updates” view shows all of the updates for a given branch, and also groups commits by Push and Pull Request activity. This view gives developers a new insight into how their Git repo is being updated over time, and provides traceability from History to Pull Requests.
