      Hey agian, all ! We’re moving right along and now have out another update as of last week (v0.3.2). A major fix in this release is that we’ve found the source of issues for connecting to TFS on-premises systems and this should be working now. Note, we are tracking down some issue still with creating workspaces against these environments, but we’re working on it.

      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/mac/tf-version-control

      If you already have it installed, open the Visual Studio > Extensions… > Updates tab to update to the latest release. Please let us know how well it’s working for you and I’ll keep you all up to date out here as we work toward our first non-preview release.

    • TFS 2015/TFS 2017 support for VS for Mac instead of Xamarin Studio

      Currently TFS 2015/TFS 2017 require Xamarin Studio being installed, but Xamarin Studio is sun set so it would be nice if TFS 2015/2017 supported VS for Mac when installing a build agent on Mac for building Xamarin iOS projects. You would think this would just work, but it doesn't.

        • Clone in Visual Studio for Mac IDE option from xyz.visualstudio.com/projectfolder from Browser

          Please add support for Cloning into Visual studio for Mac from browser just by choosing IDE from drop down and clicking on Clone button,

          Its frustrating even though TFS/VSTS plugin is there, it wont show all the projects linked somehow

              • My work

                It would be great if a My Work process like in VS20xx was added to the planned TFS addition.

                • Option to ignore whitespace

                  When comparing different versions of a file, it would be great to have an option to ignore whitespaces.
