        Update 2/14/2017 – I am happy to announce that we have updated the SlowCheetah extension to work with Visual Studio 2017 and 2015. You can install the extension from the VS marketplace: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=WillBuikMSFT.SlowCheetah-XMLTransforms

        We are also in the process of adding support for additional project and file types. For the latest development news for the extension, check out the GitHub repo: https://github.com/sayedihashimi/slow-cheetah

        Please let us know if you run into any issues by reporting them at the issue tracker on SlowCheetah’s GitHub page.

        Note: if you installed the preview extension for Visual Studio 2015, please be sure to remove it before installing the new one to avoid conflicts.

        Where did you see that show cheetah is deprecated?

        I agree. It would be awesome to use config transforms during debugging, etc instead of just during deployment.

          Hello everyone and thank you for the feedback. We are actively investigating ways to improve how Visual Studio handles project content. This suggestion falls into that category. Unfortunately, we will not be able to address this feedback for the Visual Studio 2015 release. We will update the community when our plans in this area have gained more clarity.

          Will Buik,

          @Nathan Black that's an amazing idea! We are building an angularjs app that has _nothing_ to do with asp.net. That being said, I love Visual Studio and want to continue using it as my daily development but I don't want to dictate to others which OS/IDE (if any) they should use. I'm considering treating the project as a web site instead of a web application which I think might solve the problem in a round-about way.

          Michael PatersonMichael Paterson commented  · 

          This would really be great for teams that develop on different platforms for the same project. I love Visual Studio on Windows and others on my team use Sublime Text on a Mac. This would definitely make it a much better experience.

                To a certain extent this is available in VS 2013 with the code indicators.http://blogs.msdn.com/b/bharry/archive/2013/06/03/visual-studio-2013.aspx

                    In the new build system coming with TFS 2015 you can see the full history of the changes to your build definition. The feature that is currently missing is the ability to undo or rollback to a previous revision.

                    We are working on the last pieces of rollback, and we expect that it will be available in the next major version of TFS. It should become available on Team Services in the next few months.

                    Indeed that is what I was thinking about.

                    Michael PatersonMichael Paterson commented  · 

                    @stavn it is just a xaml file. If I need to change the build definition then I update the file and check it in.

                    Michael PatersonMichael Paterson commented  · 

                    You can always store the build definition file in source control. This is what I do.

                      With the December 10th deployment, we have released our first phase of our rollout plan to deliver process customization to Visual Studio Team Services. You can now add your own fields, and change the layout of the work item form.

                      We’ll continue marching down our backlog and add more customizations until we reach full parity with what we have in TFS. This is going to take some time and you can read more about our plans in this blog post: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2016/01/11/process-customization-futures.aspx.

                        It looks like this is coming in TFS 2013!!

                          I agree that if code is commented out, delete it. That's what source control is for.

                                Think of the App_Start folder that is popping up all over the place. Also, I like to keep extension method classes in an Extensions folder but would really like to have the namespace be the root namespace. Great idea.

                                      Build A succeeds -> Build B is triggered.
                                      Personally I'd prefer to set this up in Build B to "watch" Build A then have Build A specify that Build B should be triggered.

                                          @Cesar this has long been a standard of tab-driven apps like web browsers.
