Rachat de TeamPlain par Microsoft

Nous venons d'annoncer le rachat de DevBiz, l'éditeur de la solution TeamPlain. Pour ceux d'entre vous qui ne connaitraient pas, il s'agit d'une solution d'accès Web complèt à Team Foundation Server. Cette application Web expose en mode Web toutes les fonctionnalités disponibles dans le Team Explorer et bien d'autres (sauf l'accès au code source).
En tant que fonctionnalité de Team Foundation, TeamPlain est renommé Team System Web Access et sera inclus dans les prochains PowerTools en attendant l'inclusion dans Team Foundation Server "Orcas". Vous l'aurez peut-être compris : il devient gratuit !! Enfin, il faut toujours une CAL si vous n'avez pas de "Team Edition", mais il n'y a plus de coût supplémentaire lié à l'utilisation de TeamPlain.
Vous pouvez d'ores et déjà le télécharger ici : http://www.devbiz.com/teamplain/webaccess/download.aspx
