Release Notes

Comparing Shelvesets of two users
The functionality was taken away in the April 2014 release because of the feedback that the need to type in the same user name twice hampers usability. This functionality is now re-introduced with the a cleaner slicker User interface.

Display Options
Visual Studio 2013 users can now set their display option to either show the control as a button or as a link and whether to show two users or not.

Bug Fixes
The following defects were fixed.
  • ShelvesetComparer skipped files which were added in one shelveset and modified in other when two such shelvesets were compared
  • If a file was modified in one shelveset and deleted in other, it caused the ShelvesetComparer to crash.

Reviews for this release

     
The added ability to compare shelvesets for other reviewers is great. It's also easier in this version to navigate in Team Explorer as Shelveset Comparer is its own item in the TE dropdown. Two additional things that would make it even better: a) when opening individual file comparisons a better identification of which side is from which shelveset would be helpful; b) Ability to sort the file by difference/new/unchanged in the Shelveset Comparer Summary window.
