Visual Studio 2005 Team System

Microsoft has just given an extensive demo of the team system product integrated to vstucio05. First impression is the following:
- it provides the basic tasks tracking features that we expect to have project managers informed of developer actual work with an integrated work items in vstudio
- provide an automated nightly build system with reporting capabilities
- analysis and testing components (for unit and load and functional tests)
- some diagramming features

Lot is provided which is great but it focusses on the "plumbing" and leaves the design and business analysis work untouched. Then again, if that is all that remains we will be better off than we are now.

This is good news, not great news given that these new features are 1 year away and probably won't be very stable in the beginning...

More vstudio details in the days to come.
