The introduction of the Bug Work Items and Microsoft.BugsCategory to support switching bugs from showing up on the product backlog. Add the following category:
<BugWorkItems category="Microsoft.BugCategory" pluralName="Bugs" singularName="Bug"> <States> <State value="New" type="Proposed" /> <State value="Approved" type="Proposed" /> <State value="Committed" type="InProgress" /> <State value="Done" type="Complete" /> </States> </BugWorkItems>
Bug.xml & ProductBacklogItem.xml
The removal of the BacklogPriority control from the work item form. With the Agile Tools now being part of the Standard features of TFS, it's no longer required for non-MSDN-subscribers to manually edit the BacklogPriority field. Plus, with the automatic regeneration of the field data, it was confusing to many users anyway. Remove the following line from both work item type definitions.
<Control FieldName="Microsoft.VSTS.Common.BacklogPriority" Type="FieldControl" Label="Backlog Priority" LabelPosition="Left" />
