You may recall that while Visual Studio 2005 has shipped, the Team Foundation Server (TFS) is not due until 1Q2006. Microsoft’s Rob Caron reports that the December Community Technical Preview of TFS is now available:
For MSDN Subscribers, the Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server CTP – December 2005 (English) is available for download on MSDN Subscriber Downloads.
However, be sure to read the fine print…
“The December CTP of Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server is not supported by a Go-Live license and cannot be used for production deployments. Migration from this release to the final RTM product will NOT be supported. Customers requiring a stable release of Team Foundation Server for production use should download Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server Beta 3 Refresh and complete the associated Go-Live license.“
And as usual, installation on clean machine is recommended. More details by following the link.
