Microsoft just announced (well, back on 12/21) that the Power Tools have been updated and enhanced for Visual Studio 2008.

Here's a quick list of the highlights:

  • "Find in Source Control" - right-click option to search in source by status, filename, and changeset
  • "Open in Windows Explorer" - right-click option to open a location in Windows Explorer
  • The ability to completely destroy both Work Items and Work Item Types (finally, we can clean up all those test WITs!)
  • An updated Process Template Editor (including performance improvements and bug fixes)

Here's a link to an announcement:

And here's the download:

Of course, don't forget to first grab the 2008 version of the Team Explorer. This must be installed prior to installing the new 2008 Power Tools.
