An updated release of TSWA 2008 SP1 is out.

This release contains a important security update. It should be a priority to update any TSWA site, but especially those exposed externally to the Internet.

This is a full release, not just a patch, so you'll have to uninstall and reinstall the updated version. When you uninstall the current version you will have the option to keep the existing website and the current configuration files in place. Install the updated version to the same web site and folder, then replace the web.config file with the saved web.config.old file.

The VSTS team has also released a white paper discussing the scalability of the TSWA Power Tool site. If you have a large user base for TSWA, you'll want to check this out.
