Release Notes

TfsVersioning is an extension of the TFS Build Workflow (XAML) that provides you the ability to version assemblies during the build process.


  • Control over assembly attributes has been extended to include:
    • AssemblyTitle
    • AssemblyDescription
    • AssemblyConfiguration
    • AssemblyCompany
    • AssemblyProduct
    • AssemblyCopyright
    • AssemblyTrademark
    • AssemblyCulture
    • AssemblyInformationalVersion
  • Use "Replacement Patterns" to include dynamic (build-time) information in the attribute values
  • Control over AssemblyVersion and AssemblyFileVersion exists as in the previous versions

Includes "Default" fallback solution name in version seed file.

TfsVersioning continues to be a beneficial addition to the NuGetter NuGet Automated Build project.

Reviews for this release

It does what it says. However, I'm left wanting a little more. Not much, just a little. For incremental builds (Clean Workspace = None), I would only want the assemblies that have changed to have their versions ticked. If the assembly was not changed, I'd want it left alone. If the source was avialable, I'd try to make this edit myself.

Does what it says on the tin, easy to install and get up and running and works in it's default configuration. Looks to be easy to extend / modify if you want additional functionality
