So, there are lots of exciting new changes in VS 2k8 SP1, two of which have already made me very happy, and one of which also helps:
The two that really me are in the Source Control Explorer window:
- Local Path is now blue and underlined - that's right it's now an explorer link that will open up Windows Explorer with your mapped path - no more "Select local path, Ctrl+C, Windows+R, Ctrl+V, Enter" for me, just "click".
- Add to source control - This dialog by default now lists the files you can add to source control from the currently mapped local path, with existing files hidden - hooray! That's one of my main issues with TFS fixed .
And the other change? They've updated the Visual Studio Icon to include the 9 in a box, so in a list of running programs (start bar, program lists, Alt+Tab windows) it's easy to tell at a glance which is the VS 2k8 version and which is VS 2k3.
