- More competition! No, I am very glad to see my good friend and Architect Harry start a series like mine and Mike's with his Morning Coffee 10. I'm going to have to quicken the pace-)
- JetBrains has released their 1.2 version of their new CI and build solution, Team City. This is very intersting from three perspectives. The first is that Jet Brains arguabally makes the best Java IDE on the planet, IntelliJ. The second is the Extreme Programming/Agile angle in that Jet Brains has always understood thsi community much better than Microsoft/VSTS and this has been reflected in IntelliJ and now Team City's support of NAnt, NUnit, and many others. The third is (much needed) competition for VS.NET/VSTS/TFS so that they can get better as well. As Scott said very well, if Microsoft is going to ignore us (Hugo the Agilist), people will look more and more to IDEs and tools that directly support the way they do work.
