* What's new in Visual Studio (Rosario) Aug CTP

While Visual Studio 2008 is still in Beta, VSTS team @ Microsoft has already released the CTP for next version of VSTS after 2008 version.

It has been code named as Visual Studio Team System Code Name "Rosario".

Some of the new features available in Aug, 2007 CTP are :

  • It focuses mainly on complete Application LifeCycle Management (ALM) and Quality of code developed using VSTS.
  • Development Scheduling, Tracking, Integration with Project Server and Dependency Management improves communication and collaboration with the Team.
  • Allows to view Test Coverage of Software requirements.
  • Better bug reporting functionality which includes video screen capture of events triggering bug.

Its built on top of Visual Studio 2008 so comes with .NET 3.5 but should also be able to target other versions.

Agile development methodologies seems to be working quite well at VSTS team with such frequent releases of Betas and CTPs :-)
