Visual Studio 11 brings new features in Team Build, specifically Queues Process and Copy to Source Control.   With the Queues processing, we now have Enabled, Paused, and Disabled.  These three settings can be selected to help manage your build definitions for when you want a particular queuing state. 


The other new features will allow a Team Build to copy the drop files back into source control.  This option is located in the Build Defaults section of the Team Build definition.  If you click on the eclipse button on the right hand of the menu box, it will take you to the source control area to select the correct branch you wish to have the build output files artifacts dropped to. 

You might not want everything to be added to source control, so you still have the default UNC path for build output files.


The Build Explorer also has new features that are worth noting.   The Build Explorer now has a filter to only show the build requested by me! It is also able to sort your favorite build definitions easily by dragging and dropping them into your My Favorites Build Definitions area.  For those of who have a number of builds to sort through, we now have a quick search option, which is also a nice feature.
