Microsoft this week acquired Teamprise, a division of SourceGear that built tools to give developers access to Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server from systems running Linux, Mac OS X and Unix.SourceGear's flagship SourceOffSite provides remote access to Visual SouceSafe, Microsoft's version control system.
Teamprise comes in three forms. The Plug-in for Eclipse allows developers source control, bug tracking, build and reporting operations from within their current Eclipse environment or Eclipse-based IDE. Teamprise Explorer does the same but can can stand alone. There's also the Command-Line Client automated builds and other scripting situations.
Updated to version 3.2 in March, Teamprise was given a complete command-line feature set, support for building projects with Maven and a single sign-on for Linux and Mac OS X with Kerberos authentication. All three modules at that time also gained support for HP-UX on IA64. Teamprise is now at version 3.3, which according to release notes, is a maintenance release.
Microsoft said in a statement that Teamprise functionality will be integrated into the Visual Studio product line beginning with Visual Studio 2010.
