We have a new release of Power Pack for you today, featuring a number of improvements to the Microsoft Team Foundation Server integration and PDF document review.

I'd like to start with a big thank you to everyone who has worked with us to improve the stability of TFS in the past month, by filing reports and testing builds.

We'll cover the highlights of the release here. You can also check out the full release notes for more details.

Better TFS Support

The big focus of this release is our TFS support. We've made it easier to get started with TFS, simplifying the process for installation, and fixing compatibility issues.

We've worked around a number of TFS file type reporting issues, which led to broken diffs. If you still encounter any broken diffs, let us know, and we'll work with you to fix them.

There's also new support for TFS projects that contain multiple Git repositories. If you have a repository on TFS, it should now just work.

HD Thumbnails for PDFs

Power Pack 1.3.1 brings support for HD thumbnails for PDF files.

HD thumbnails are a new feature in the upcoming Review Board 2.5 release, offering higher-quality, spacious thumbnails that show more of your document at a glance. If you're on a high-DPI/Retina display, these thumbnails will really shine.

Getting Started

If you're new to Power Pack, you can get started by downloading a trial license and following the installation instructions. When your trial expires, you'll be able to keep all your current features for up to 2 people, forever.

If you're already using Power Pack, upgrading is simple:

$ sudo easy_install -U ReviewBoardPowerPack

Once installation completes, reload your web server, and you're good to go!
