Improved Team Development
Another important improvement thanks to the new project structure affects team development. If you've had a chance to work with Team Foundation Server and source control over a LightSwitch application, you know how painful merging changes can be. In previous versions of LightSwitch, not all elements in the solution were managed by the source control engine. Now that everything is basically a file, every element is added to source control, allowing Team Foundation Server to manage the application changes correctly, thereby enabling team members to be more productive and efficient.
