Microsoft Visual Studio Team System Code Name "Rosario"

Microsoft® Visual Studio® Team System code name “Rosario” is the version of Team System that follows Visual Studio Team System 2008. It is an integrated Application Life-cycle Management (ALM) solution comprising tools, processes, and guidance.

i heard in the last EDC - Egyptian developers conference- that Rosario will not be released with a new dotnet framework, it will work with dotnet framework 3.5 like VSTS2008.

Some of the major scenarios and features in this release will include:

  • Joint prioritization and management of IT projects through integration with Microsoft Project Server
  • Project management across multiple projects for proactively load balancing resources according to business priorities
  • Full traceability (inc. hierarchical work items) to track project deliverables against business requirements and the ability to conduct rapid impact analysis of proposed changes
  • Comprehensive metrics and dashboards for shared visibility into project status and progress against deliverables
  • Powerful new features to enable developers and testers to quickly identify, communicate, prioritize, diagnose and resolve bugs
  • Integrated test case management to create, organize and manage test cases across both the development and test teams
  • Testing automation and guidance to help developers and testers focus on business-level testing rather than repetitive, manual tasks
  • Quality metrics for a ‘go/no-go’ release decision on whether an application is ready for production and has been fully tested against business requirements
  • Rapid integration of remote, distributed, disconnected and outsourced teams into the development process
  • Easy customization of process and guidance from Microsoft and partners to match the way your team works
  • Integrated support to build setup packages using Windows Installer XML technology
  • Improvements to multi-server administration, build and source control.
