Beta 2 is out!

I’m happy to announce that the final beta release of Vault 5.0 and Fortress 2.0 is available for download now.  You can get the beta from the usual places.  Beyond the release notes, there were a few things that I think need to be highlighted.

The web client redesign.  At last, our web client looks are brought up to the level of its functionality.  You may not realize this, but our old design was the result of a contest back in 2004.  The old design hadn’t aged well, and became more and more difficult to maintain.  The new design is easier to use, and easier to maintain.  For a tour of the new web client, check out Paul’s Blog.

Click to edit.  Work item fields can now be edited in place.  Just click the field, and start editing.

Restore open documents and scroll positions on an unshelve.  Now, when you shelve files from Visual Studio or from Eclipse, we record the scroll position and restore it when you Unshelve. Talk about picking up right where you left off!

Line History now searches through VSS history, too.  It’s no secret that I love Line History, and I’m thrilled that we can now use this awesome feature to make Handoff data seamlessly integrated.
