  1. Update the Visual Studio 2015 licensing whitepaper to allow use of SQL Server 2016 with TFS 2015 update 3

    The Visual Studio 2015 licensing whitepaper states that a licence for SQL Server 2014 Standard Edition is included in a TFS 2015 server licence. With the release of TFS 2015 Update 3, TFS is now compatible with SQL Server 2016.

    Do you intend to upgrade the TFS licence to allow the use of SQL Server 2016? If so, can you update the white paper?

    • Let WPF support multiple UI threads

      I really hate the UI always block by something. We need the UI smooth and never block. even some cheap ARM device UI thread manage area better than WPF.

      • Add a "bug" annotation to feature cards on the features backlog board

        When viewing the feature backlog board, a user is able to see a "Product Backlog Items" annotation, which can be dropped down to view a list of all PBIs. This list does not include bug items. It is also not possible to enable an annotation for bugs.

        It is possible to enable multiple annotations at once for PBIs themselves, which can have both tasks and tests.

        Please enable a "Bugs" annotation for features.

        • Remember state properties panel in edit code or edit form documents

          Remember state properties panel in edit code or edit form documents
          for example:
          when code edit properties panel closed (more space)
          when form edit properties panel opened (see and edit properties)

              • Bring a command palette to visual studio.

                Add a combined fuzzy search and command launcher that works in a similar way to Sublime Text or Visual Studio Code.

                I appreciate there is Ctrl+, but it sucks and half the time fails. It does not allow for fuzzy searching and is prone to crashing when used a lot (experienced over 2013 and 2015).

                    • Pull request approvals reset or downgrade when new code is pushed to branch

                      A administrative setting on version control that will cause all PR approvals to be removed/reset if new code is pushed to the branch.

                      Currently if someone reviews the code and approves it. I can push changes and merge without them being forced to review again.

                      They are notified, but It would be nice to force another review by someone if new changes are made.

                      I am pretty sure GitHub developed something similar in the past 6 months or so.

                        There appears to be a link within the TFS database that links Git Commits to Work items. There are also links from Work items to Commits. If you create a commit from Visual Studio and associate a work item OR if you enter a comment for the commit that contains #12345 on the first line the references are established when the commit is pushed to the TFS server.
                        However, if you have not done this and you navigate to the commit using the web UI for TFS you can click a button that lets you "Add overall comment for this…

                            • variable/field with open generic type

                              Sometimes we need to work with different types that are instances of a base type which is generic, but that is all we need and it does not matter what the generic parameter was in those instances.

                              Example:

                              interface IFoo<T, U> { ... }

                              class MyClass
                              {
                              private Dictionary<string, IFoo<,>> store;

                              public void Add<T, U>(string key, IFoo<T, U> foo)
                              {
                              store.Add(key, foo);
                              }
                              }

                              We have no choice, but to declare 'store' as Dictionary<string, object>. Clearly, the Add() method safeguards 'store' and only IFoo<T> types will be added to 'store', however, when working with 'store', we need to type cast…

                              • do something about SSIS control flow task focus

                                On large Control Flow with a lot of tasks, it would be nice that the screen STAY at the location of the task that has focus rather than bouncing back to the top (or miles away) of the workspace (sometimes taking the task with it).

                                • TFS 2015 - Merge Process - More Control (Nice to Have)

                                  It would be nice to have some more detailed control on how the merge process operates over a branch. For example, we recently had an issue where a file was auto-merged that a team did not want to accept changes for. It would be nice to mark such a file to not automatically resolve conflicts, while leaving the rest of the merge settings across the branch intact (auto-resolve everywhere else).

                                  • Support template parameter types in JSDoc

                                    Since TypeScript now supports template types, having JSDoc generator and JSDoc syntax highlight respect template parameters could be useful. If I do something like that in VS 2015 now:

                                    /**
                                    * Creates a function that allows to ...
                                    * @param {IContainer<ISpecialObject>} container ...
                                    * @returns {ICollection<IAnotherObject>} ...
                                    */
                                    function myFunc(container: IContainer<ISpecialObject>): ICollection<IAnotherObject>

                                    The JSDoc generator will not generate the type of the @return parameter, and for the container parameter the highlighting will be corrupted.

                                    • Give user a way to turn off Microsoft Git Provider completely.

                                      The only two things Microsoft Git Provider does is
                                      - cause problems for ReSharper (file is still read-only bug that is there for like two versions of VS)
                                      - eat CPU time

                                      It would be nice if there was a way to disable this abomination completely and not have it come back to life every time I reload Visual Studio.

                                      • add a setting to show the names of Associations near the start instead of near the destination by default

                                        Names of Associations in a class diagram are currently shown near their destination instead of near their start.

                                        It does not make a lot of sense to see a class MyClass with 5 incoming Associations that are all named MyClass or MyClasses when it would be much more interesting to see that name near the class that actually has that property.

                                        • Fix IDE window separation drag handles

                                          This may just be me but any time I try to resize a window by dragging the handles between windows I often have to grab and drag 3-4 times before the window resizes. It appears to move but it doesn't really do anything (the window snaps back to the same size it was before).
                                          Working back and forth between code and Team Foundation windows, Find All References windows means that I wind up doing this a lot. I ignored it in 2013 but now that it's not fixed in 2015, I want to know if anyone else has this issue…
