TFS / Fogbugz

A two-sided question... 
Does FB support source control integration with TFS? When is this planned for? 

The other part of my question... When comparing FB to TFS, there's a lot to like about FB - BUT there's also some missing functionality that TFS does provide, not to mention how integrated TFS is into visual studio.
In fact, the only real killer feature in FB that would make it worth it (either choosing FB over TFS, or figuring out how to use both) is EBS. That said, EBS alone might make it worth it...
Am I missing anything else? More important, how would be best to combine both TFS and FB, to get the best of both?

We do have TFS integration forthcoming in our next version.  I'm not sure how it fits with your needs, but it will basically mirror our current source code control integration.  When you do a check-in in TFS with the appropriate BugzID, the integration will pick up those checkins and create an appropriate notation in the FogBugz case.

In order to make that useful, you'll need to have Team System Web Access running.  This will allow viewers of a given FogBugz case to see all source code changes associated with that case.

Thanks, that's good to hear. (Btw, when IS the next version due...? ;-) )

But it does sound as if you're only talking about supporting integration with TFS for source control, what about the other functionality? E.g. managing cases?

As I mentioned, the key feature (as I see it) that pushes for FB is EBS - which in turn relies on numerous other features and sub-features, such as case management, estimates, assignments, work tracking, etc. Using TFS+FB does sound like a lot of duplicate work... how would be best to alleviate this?

Thanks!

We're not really TFS experts, so it's hard for me to say what the real right answer is here.

FogBugz 7 is progressing through beta right now.  It's due out later this summer, depending on what further bugs we find as the beta expands.
