Visual Studio Team Services

Standalone Team Foundation Server 2012 API (Client Object Model)

I just found out that Microsoft silently released the standalone version of their TFS 2012 API (called Client Object Model) a couple weeks back that allows creation of applications targeting a Team Foundation Server without the necessity of having a complete Visual Studio 2012 (Shell) installed on the target system, as normally required.

As redistribution of these bits was not allowed with the 2010 one (apparently for no practical but rather ‘legally unclear, hence not allowed’ reasons) and the 2012 one does not clearly state whether or not it is allowed now, I’ve inquired about this there, too.
