Urban Turtle 3.0 Release Candidate

The Urban Turtle team is proud to finally present the release candidate of our Agile Project Management extension to Team Web Access 2010: Urban Turtle 3.0. This new version sports a brand new look, a streamlined user interface and full support for Team Foundation Server 2010. Make sure to download it and request a free 30-day trial, you'll find that you can't do Agile in TFS 2010 without Urban Turtle.

In the last few months, we've spent quite some time working on our template support. Out of the box, Urban Turtle supports the MSF Agile 5.0 process template. We're actually quite proud to introduce what we think is the first and only 3-column task board to work with MSF Agile 5.0 without any modifications.

But what's even better is that we support virtually any process template through an xml mapping file. We already provide one such file to support MSF Agile 5.0, but new ones can be added to support your own template.

We're aiming to sim-ship alongside Team Foundation Server 2010 which has just been made available, meaning the RTM version should be ready before the end of the month. Right now, the release candidate has only been tested with TFS 2010 RC. We recommend using Microsoft's virtual machine to try Urban Turtle 3.0 RC.

We hope you enjoy this latest release, and please do provide some feedback so that we make the turtle even better!
