Goodbye GotDotNet, Hello CodePlex

Rob Caron announced, along with James Newkirk and Korby Parnell, that Microsoft has deployed the first public beta of the replacement for -, which is build on Team Foundation Server.

It appears that membership is free, but I was not able to find any information on whether or not members must purchase a license of Team Explorer to connect to CodePlex or how that'll work out. However, since the Express Editions do not support MSSCCI out-of-box, it looks like dev's will have to pony-up for Standard Edition to integrate the IDE with CodePlex using the Team Foundation Server MSSCCI least that's my current understanding...

Should be interesting to see how this develops...


  • All Free. The TFC clients, Team Explorer GUI and TF.exe command line client, will almost certainly be free (read, I will not say "will be" until they're up) and downloadable from the MSCOM Download Center. In the meantime, you can download the 180-day Trial Edition of VSTS, which includes Team Explorer and TF.exe as standalone installs.
