Debugging .NET Native Windows Universal Apps
With the release of Windows 10 we also shipped Visual Studio Tools for Windows 10. As you will have heard Universal Windows apps written in .NET (either C# or VB) will be compiled to native machine code before being deployed to customer devices using .NET Native. However, the default Debug configuration still uses .NET Core runtime to allow for a fast edit->compile->debug cycle. You always need to test with the actual code generation and runtime technology your application will use when running in production as it can expose bugs you might not be able to find with your development configuration (e.g. race conditions that manifest due to different performance characteristics). To facilitate this, when you choose the Release build configuration your app is compiled using the .NET Native tool chain.

MSBuild and Team Foundation Server integration with SonarQube: version 1.0 released
As you might recall, we announced back in April at the //build conference that we were working with SonarSource to provide a better integration of SonarQube with MSBuild and Team Foundation Server. At that time, SonarSource shipped the result of this initial collaboration, the SonarQube.MSBuild.Runner 0.9, which enabled the analysis of technical debt during a build in TFS 2013. The ALM Rangers also produced a nice guidance document explaining how to install SonarQube, especially with SQL Server.
