Team Foundation Server 2017 Released!

In case you haven't already read the news, Team Foundation Server 2017 has been released!  https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/news/releasenotes/tfs2017-relnotes

One of the most exciting features of Team Foundation Server 2017 is the release of the much anticipated "Code Search" Feature: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudioalm/2016/11/16/announcing-code-search-on-team-foundation-server-2017/

Finally, you can search for code throughout your Team Foundation Server project repository!

In addition, most Team Foundation Server Power Tools functionality has been directly integrated into TFS 2017 so there should be little need to separately install the TFS Power Tools as has been common with all previous releases of TFS.

There are a large number of enhancements to TFS 2017 that seem to make it a worthwhile upgrade overall and a significant step up even from its predecessor TFS 2015!

Unfortunately, on the down side, Project Server integration has been removed with this release and will only be available via 3rd party integrations going forward.  https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/work/office/sync-ps-tfs
