As time passes, it is time again to release a new version of this popular tool
Biggest change this time is internal: TFS Bug Item Synchronizer is getting new internal database.
Previous one had couple of issues that especially big installations are suffering from. These are things like
Fragmentation. As time goes by, database gets fragmented to to defragment database file takes time. On some cases this was taking 30-60 minutes which is quite a lot when it is done at DBService startup.
File size. Database file size was on some cases growing quite a lot, especially if defragmentation was not run on regular intervals.
So to fix these, we had to change internal database and it actually gives some more possibilities as well, but those are coming a bit later on.
Upgrade from version 2.4 and below old database to new need to be done extra carefully, all needed steps are already documented in the Release Notes...
