Work on Visual WIP is progressing. Lots of refactoring has been done for the last few weeks. I’m trying to move as much as possible of the visuals to xaml files that will be loaded in run time making it possible for you to customize the visuals to suit your needs. Below is a screenshot based on the current pre-release that you can find here
In the Analysis column you can see the new hierarchical work item support. In the example above user story work item [15 – New UI design] has one issue work item as a child [19 – Problems] that in turn has issue work item [20 – More trouble] as a child.
The Analysis column has also exceeded its work-in-progress limit and the column background has been changed to strengthen the visual signals.
In the Testing column you see the medium size work item design.
In the Production Ready column you see the small size work item design.
In the coming week I will continue working on the save and load settings support.
If you are interested in contributing to the project please let me know. I’m especially looking for help with UX work and help with building an SharePoint provider.
