As of today, you can download the just-released Team Foundation Server 2013 Power Tools (compatible with TFS 2013 RC). If you’re not familiar with the TFS Power Tools, and you spend any amount of time working with TFS on a day-to-day basis, I highly recommend you check these out.
This release is comprised of four separate downloads:
- Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013 Power Tools – this is a collection of multiple tools, including:
- Best Practices Analyzer (TFS application tier only)
- Check-in Policies
- Process Template Editor
- Storyboard Shapes
- Team Explorer Enhancements
- Team Foundation Power Tool Command Line (tfpt.exe)
- Test Attachment Cleaner
- Windows PowerShell Cmdlets
- Windows Shell Extensions
- Work Item Templates
- Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013 Build Extensions – the Team Foundation Build Extensions provide the ability to execute Ant or Maven 2 builds from Team Foundation Server 2013 and publish the results of the build along with any associated JUnit test results back to Team Foundation Server.
- Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013 MSSCCI Provider 32-bit – enables integrated use of Team Foundation Version Control with products that do not support Team Explorer integration. Refer to the above link for more information about what products can make use of this provider.
- Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013 MSSCCI Provider 64-bit – this version of the MSSCCI Provider is for 64-bit products using MSSCCI such as the 64-bit version of MatLab. The majority of applications using a MSSCCI provider typically require the 32-bit version
