MSF Process Templates v4.1

Late last year Microsoft released the Process Guidance updated for the Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals (for both MSF for Agile Software Development and MSF for CMMI Process Improvement). There were manual steps required to integrate that guidance into the Process Templates which shipped in TFS. We are now making the next version of Process Templates available which have the Process Guidance for Database Professionals already integrated.

Also as you use Process Editor, I think there is a non-zero possibility of overwriting the default process templates which shipped in the box. Though TFS will give you ample warning before you do that, but just in case you do manage to overwrite them, the following downloads are your backup to get those Process Templates.

This also coincides with the launch of the new website for MSF, which will provide access to Process Templates and other Process related tools and components from Microsoft and its partners. Here is the URL for the site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/msf.
