Are there any new custom TFS/VS 2010 Workitem controls? Any on the horizon?

This project is mainly intended as implementation examples of custom controls. It's also open to the community so others can contribute too. I do plan on adding a voting control in the near future.

I like that this project has included examples of custom controls especially for VS 2005 and VS 2008.

The MultiValueControl is a great example. I just know that I've had issues in the past with having to deploy different versions of the same control for VS 2005 and VS 2008.

I'm hoping that the existing controls can be updated to work with VS 2010.

I'd also like to see some kind of packaging for these controls(makes deployment much easier) along the lines of: http://www.teamsystem.es/post/2008/07/Paquete-de-Check-In-Policies-check-in-policies-pack-v10.aspx

Any thoughts? Or is this abandonware?

the code for the custom contol for 2010 didnt change. I just linked it with 10.0 version of the assembly. Under the download page two MSIs are provided one for 2010 and one for 2008. regarding package, you can deploy them via MSI, or a VSIX or any other mechanism you have. the files just need to be dropped in custom control folder. see the blog post here http://blogs.msdn.com/b/greggboer/archive/2010/03/30/work-item-tracking-custom-controls.aspx for details about deployment folders and lookup.
