New TeamReview release & new TeamReview contributors

TeamReview has crossed a few milestones lately that I am proud of, including another release (details below), and we have one big upcoming celebration to tell you about.  

Today "the most complete code review tool for Team System" surpassed the 2K download mark. Yesterday we published the 9th release of TeamReview to add some nice-to-have features out-lined below. You may have noticed I said "we published" instead of "I published" in the last sentence. One of the things I am most proud of, and most excited about is that 2 new contributors recently joined and have started making some great changes. Somehow going from just one guy with a far-fetched idea hacking out some code to now being part of a team of 4 developers delivering on the product's vision makes this open source project seem more real. Maybe it's my perspective, but at least to me it feels like a "bigger" open source project with a brighter future than before. 

The cherry on top of all the fore-mentioned positives is that TeamReview will be celebrating it's first birthday on April 8th! It's hard for me to believe it's been a year, time flies when you're having fun.

Here are the features in yesterday's release to make TeamReview an even better product.
  • A packaged VSTS 2010 install
  • Support for DB Projects
  • More support for Solution Items and projects within Solution folders
  • Form fields are sorted logically
  • The New Code Review Response form is re-sizable
  • The New Code Review Response form will show in the same position and size as last used during that Visual Studio "session"
  • The Code Review Replay form is updated with values when work items are edited and saved.
  • The grid in the Code Review Replay form is sortable
  • A few minor bug fixes
