New Features:
  • --mentions option - for Clone, Fetch and Pull. The --mentions option adds references in the commit comments for any work items linked to the corresponding TFVC changeset.
  • Added the ability to opt-in/out (via config) on Git Meta Data being added to TFS Changeset comments, and defined --no-metadata as the default
  • git.config - enable the saving of git-tf configuration parameters in the global git config file. With this change
    1. The 'git tf clone' command does not store in the local repository config file 'depth', 'tag', and 'include-metadata' parameters. The user has to configure them explicitly with 'git tf configure' or 'git config' commands.
    2. The 'git tf configure' command puts to the the local repository config file only the parameters explicitly specified by the user.
    3. The user has an ability to specify git-tf configuration parameters in a global .gitconfig file by using commands:
   git config --global git-tf.depth {1|number} - where number is any positive number. 
   git config --global git-tf.tag {true|false} 
   git config --global git-tf.include-metadata {true|false}

In the similar way these parameters could be specified in the --system git configuration.

Major Bug Fixes:
  • RenameEdit pending changes fixed
  • Null exception in exception handler fixed
  • The git-tf Bash script modified to fix the issue with spaces in TFS Team Project and target directory names when Git-TF is installed in the C:\Program Files... folder on Windows

Reviews for this release

git-tf worked for me (2.0.2), where the newer version of it and the other tool git-tfs failed. I pulled gigabytes of data from a remote TFS 2008 server over a slow network over the course of 21 hours, but everything came through just fine. Thanks much!

Excellent tool! Also, this version (2.0.2) still works wonders, and supports TFS 2005 and 2008.

This tool solves a lot of political issues. I simply can't work without it
