URL to Browse the Latest Version of Source Code

In this release, the CodePlex team made improvements to the source browsing URLs. Now, when you navigate to the source browsing page, the provided URL will always point to the latest version of the file! Here is an example of the new URL: https://typescript.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest#README.txt

If you would like a URL to a specific version of a file, you can still get this by navigating to the specific commit through the history section of the source browser, or you can replace "/latest" in the new URLs with "/changeset/{commit SHA or changeset ID}".

We also added a new “settings” tab to CodePlex. This tab replaces the old “edit project summary and details” page that previously contained all project’s settings. The settings tab is only visible to project coordinators.

In addition to the above changes, the CodePlex team made the following notable improvements:

  • Fixed a bug that was stopping users from uploading ClickOnce releases.
  • Users will automatically become followers for projects they have created.
  • When clicking a user’s name from the people tab, it will no longer open in a new tab.
  • It is now possible to edit a closed issue.
