Next week we will be rolling out our sprint 110 and 111 updated (we didn’t do a 110 deployment due to the holidays). You can check out the release notes for details. Please bear with us – these changes are going to roll out a bit slower than usual. As I write this, we are waiting for a major snow storm to hit North Carolina and we are expecting a pretty interrupted work schedule into early next week. As such most people probably won’t have access to these changes until mid next week (~Jan 11th).

When you do get them, you’ll find there’s quite a lot of new stuff. The thing I’m most excited to hear your feedback about is all the UX changes we’ve been making to make Team Services more personal and more approachable – the new account level experience and the new project home page and associated navigation changes, especially. Please check it out and give us your feedback.

We’ve also implemented a consistent way for you to learn about and enable the various preview features that we enable. Particularly with the bigger UX changes we’ve been making, we’re increasingly introducing them as “opt-in” changes so we can collect feedback and refine them before we roll them out broadly. We hope it also gives you some opportunity to decide when is a convenient time to absorb the changes. This release introduces 2 previews – one for the account experience and one for some notifications changes. We’ve got more previews like that coming in the next few sprints.

Check it out and let us know what you think!
