Overall Platform Workspace 3.6 Plan

The overall themes for this release are detailed below (Note, at this point, these are just items that we could potentially address):

  • Adopt new menu/commands (196349): The new menu/commands story has been evolving over the last few releases and should be in a state in 3.5 that will allow the Team, Compare and CVS plug-ins to adopt the support.
