Microsoft Introduces Visual Studio Team Explorer
The release is the result of Microsoft's acquisition of the Teamprise assets in November 2009.
"Microsoft acquired the assets of Teamprise in November 2009 to cater to customers who wanted to use Microsoft's TFS (Team Foundation Server) for applications running across heterogeneous systems," writes eWeek's Darryl K. Taft.
"As S. 'Soma' Somasegar, executive vice president of Microsoft's DeveloperDivision, said in a March 4 blog post... 'This release includes the Team Foundation Server Plug-in for Eclipse as well as the Team Foundation Server Cross Platform Command Line Client. It works on Windows, Mac, Linux, and multiple flavors of UNIX, providing access to the same source control, work item tracking, build automation, and reporting features that Visual Studio customers have benefited from,'" Taft writes.
