Important Information for TFS 2015 Users
We unified the extension IDs for all SpecMap versions to ensure you can migrate from SpecMap for TFS 2015 to SpecMap for TFS 2017 or Azure DevOps (VSTS) in future.
Maps are stored in TFS using the extension ID, which means that after upgrading to 0.1.32 (with the new ID), your old maps will no longer be displayed. Your maps need to be migrated to the new extension. Details on how to migrate your maps can be found here.
SpecMap will now also display a message if you start SpecMap and no maps are found, in case this is due to the change in the extension ID. This message also includes a link to the instructions on how to migrate your maps.
Version 0.1.32 (1 December 2017)
- TFS and VSTS versions now use the same ID; mismatched IDs cause issues when migrating from TFS to VSTS
- Updated the notification bar displayed when a new version is available
Version 0.1.31 (23 November 2017)
- Import/export maps
- Bug fixes
