Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition GDR

Hi Everyone,

The VSTS Database Edition GDR (which introduced support for SQL Server 2008) has just been released (RTM).

Worthy of note: (from the release notes):


Partial projects

  • Allowing code sharing between projects by including files from a different project, where the code is included as-is from the originating project and the source code control ownership remains with the originating project
  • This enables code reuse and single sourcing while having a single deployment unit


  • Preservation of Intent
    • Enables the deployment of refactoring changes as intended by the user (renames are deployed as renames not as drop/add statements for example)

New Refactoring Operations

  • Wildcard Expansion
  • Move Schema
  • Fully Qualify
  • Extensibility point which enables the ability to develop and deploy custom refactoring types and targets

Note: Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 is a prerequisite
