Hedgehog Development's Team Development for Sitecore 2.1

On a typical Sitecore project with a budget $50,000 or more, our latest version can save a client 8% - 15% on average

Hedgehog Development, a leading custom application development company and the creators of the celebrated Team Development for Sitecore (TDS), today announced the software product's 2.1 release. The release, which comes after an extensive beta period with key customers and partners, is free for current licensees of Team Development for Sitecore under support and also available for purchase.

Multiple Sitecore Databases
The 2.1 version of Team Development for Sitecore now provides support for managing and collaborating across multiple TDS projects for all Sitecore databases, not just the master--- an addition that can significantly increase productivity.

Helps Developers Follow Best Practices While Saving Clients Money
Team Development for Sitecore 2.1 brings all Sitecore objects into Visual Studio and provides all the benefits of a source control management system, fully integrated with your Sitecore development environment.

By bringing all your Sitecore objects from several Sitecore databases into Visual Studio Team System (VSTS), Subversion, or many other Source Code Management Systems, you can increase the predictability of your software development process and save time and money.

"On a typical Sitecore project with a budget $50,000 or more, our latest version can save a client 8% - 15% on average" said Peter Madsen, senior partner at Hedgehog. "Less time spent managing Sitecore items will allow clients to spend more time on the quality of the Sitecore solution."

Additional Benefits
The new TDS version 2.1.0 also includes:

  •     HTTPS support for communicating with Sitecore securely
  •     Additional syncing checks for move/rename with visual warning
  •     Items labeled as "exclude" in the Deployment Property manager are now marked as "exclude" in the sync window
  •     UI enhancement to allow for easy editing of individual .user file
  •     Improved file replacements when creating packages
  •     Improved performance of menus

The per-seat cost for a TDS 2.1 license is $599.00 and includes one year of free upgrades (major and minor releases) and technical support. After the first year, a client can purchase a maintenance agreement for 40% of their purchase, entitling them to another year of technical support and upgrades.
