Sitecore Productivity to the Next Level

You Spoke, We Listened

At Hedgehog, we're committed to creating the best possible products for Sitecore developers. TDS 5.8, our latest version of Team Development for Sitecore, is no exception. Our goal with this version was to improve Sitecore developer productivity; most of the new features are based on feedback we received after the successful launch of TDS 5.7.

From the ability to deploy in Azure to the Visual Studio 2019 compatibility, we're excited to share the latest version of TDS with the Sitecore world.

Azure Ready

Sitecore has embraced Azure and is using WebDeploy extensively in their deployment process. TDS Classic 5.8 will now generate a WebDeploy package as part of its build process.

Visual Studio 2019 

TDS Classic right-click menu items have been added to a Visual Studio toolbar. The toolbar helps developers quickly access TDS features and is totally compatible with the latest version of Visual Studio 2019. 

The New Toolbar

A new toolbar for easier access to some of the regularly used features. With TDS 5.8 the toolbar is placed within Visual Studio's tools.

Additional New Features
Project Dependency
TDS "Sync all projects" has been dramatically improved. The Sync all project feature now syncs all projects in dependency order.

Create “Placeholder” items that aren’t deployed, but exist in the project 

TDS now supports a deployment type called “Placeholder” which allows items to exist in the project but never be synced or deployed. Items under the placeholders will not inherit placeholder status when they are created.
