Microsoft Fixes TFS Kanban Bug
Microsoft has fixed a bug on its Kanban board that was introduced with its last Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 revision, which came out March 4.
According to this Team Foundation Server (TFS) blog posting, the bug accidentally re-ordered the first Kanban board column by closed date instead of stack rank. Since closed date is empty in that column, it randomized the items in the column. Ouch.
I assume that because of vociferous developer feedback, Microsoft decided to send out an immediate fix, rather than wait for the final release, which should be coming out very soon. With the rapid release schedule of these updates to Update 2, it's a sign of how significant this issue was that Redmond didn't wait a bit for the official version of Update 2 to drop.
You can get the latest version of Update 2 (CTP 4) here.
