Hedgehog Announces Release of TDS Classic 5.8 
The Essential Tool for Sitecore Development and Deployment

Hedgehog, a digital consultancy engineering high - performance, multi-channel solutions, announced the release of TDS Classic 5.8

TDS Classic has always been a top choice for Sitecore deployments, development and best practices. TDS Classic 5.8 is no exception to the commitment of improving Sitecore developer productivity. The two prominent new features are the ability to perform Azure deployments and the addition of a toolbar in Visual Studio 2019. 
With Sitecore embracing Azure, TDS Classic 5.8 can now generate a WebDeploy package as part of its build process. TDS Classic 5.8 right-click menu items have been added to a Visual Studio toolbar – helping developers quickly access TDS features. Other noteworthy features include project dependency and the ability to create “Placeholder” items that aren’t deployed but exist in the project.

 “Our team dedicates themselves to creating products that help ease the Sitecore development process. It’s important to us to really listen to our users and get their feedback about our products.” said Greg Charles, Head of Product, Hedgehog, “TDS Classic 5.8 has new features suggested by our users and will give developers back hours of productivity.”

Sitecore developers can trial TDS Classic 5.8 for 30 days or purchase a new or upgraded license

Along with TDS Classic, the Essential Collection includes Feydra, a tool that bridges the gap between front-end and back-end Sitecore developers, Razl which allows developers to have a complete side-by-side comparison between two Sitecore® databases, and Avtor, the newest addition to the Team Development for Sitecore family designed to improve productivity and enhance usability for Sitecore content editors and strategists.  Explore the suite of essential must-have tools.
