it says it all. There’s no more manual packaging and deploying that package to the target environment. Instead we as a team manage our changes through the source control system

Comparing the changes through the source control history –the display depends on the merge tool that you use, i’m using WinMerge in this case.

And when we’re planning to do deployment to target environment we just need to make sure that we set that in the project properties and TDS will take care of the rest.
