Team Explorer Everywhere is the official TFS plug-in for Eclipse from Microsoft. It works on the operating system of your choice with your favorite Eclipse-based IDE and helps you collaborate across your development teams using Team Foundation Server or Visual Studio Team Services. It’s an easy-to-install standalone plug-in that is a free download provided by the same team at Microsoft that develops Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio Team Services. Note that a Team Foundation Server CAL may be required to connect to TFS, but this is not required for connecting to Visual Studio Team Services.

Your language, your words, your plug-in for you!
Along with open-sourced Team Explorer Everywhere (TEE) source code on GitHub , we are making it possible for anyone to contribute translations in your native language. With these changes, you can now improve existing translated resources, translate updated resources, or even provide new language support TEE did not have before. Your contribution will be part of the TEE Plug-in in your language for everyone to use. We highly appreciate your efforts, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions on the TEE community localization process. Your contribution could be in next release!

Earlier versions of the TEE plugin for eclipse worked fine, but now I get "authentication not supported" every time I try to Import Repository from a Git repo.
Steps to reproduce (references to TFS server, team project, and repository below are bogus for illustration only): Install brand new eclipse 4.5.2; Open Eclipse against empty workspace; Install latest TEE plugin (14.0.2) from Eclipse Marketplace; Connect to TFS server at [TFS server url]; Select Git-based Team Project MyTeamProject; open Git Repositories tab; right-click repository MyGitRepo and select Import Repository; step through the wizard until clicking Next on the Clone Summary screen results in the error message: "Clone operation failed: Error cloning the MyGitRepo repository.
[url to TFS-based MyGitRepo]: authentication not supported".
My environment details: Eclipse 4.5.2, TEE plugin 14.0.2, Windows 7 Enterprise SP1, 16GB RAM;
TFS Server environment: TFS Server 2013 Version 12.0.31101.0 (not sure of any of the other details)
NOTE: I have completely wiped out my eclipse installation and installed fresh, to no avail.
ALSO NOTE: The error message "authentication not supported" is identical to the error message that I get if I try to use Eclipse's built-in jgit/egit implementation to access the TFS Git repo - seemingly because TFS 2013 requires only NTLM by default (and our internal hosting team won't allow BASIC auth), and jgit does not support NTLM. So it's almost as if TEE is delegating the Git repo access to jgit, which fails due to lack of NTLM support.

Can you add issue at https://github.com/Microsoft/team-explorer-everywhere/issues ?
Well, Microsoft TFS team should show that they are committed to support technologies, that were previously names as supported, in every major product version.

MSDN boards have a lot of people complaining about this error.

After installing TFS plugin to Eclipse and adding our server info, we tried to connect (https protocol).
We got the error:
An error occurred: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
Since TFS uses Java to verify the certificate chain we tried adding certificates to the keystore, but due to configuration issues outside our control (corporate parent) we were unable to get that to work.
Therefore our only option was to do this in Eclipse:
Window->Preferences->Team->Team Foundation Server
Click "Accept untrusted SSL certificates" box.
This allowed a connection to our server.

There is no way to create team project with git from eclipse plugin.
I can not create team project from the browser (on premise) or eclipse plugin.
I can only create team project from Visual Studio 2013.
Used Team Foundation Server 2013 (on premise).

Unfortuantely, my local TFS instance is setup with an underscore in the server name. Because of this I'm unable to setup a connection to the server.
When I use "http:\\tfs2012_at:8080\tfs" I get "Using a host name that contains underscores is not supported" in the preview box and when I use "http:\\tfs2012%5Fat:8080\tfs" I get "Server name cannot be empty" in the preview box. Either way clicking the OK button does nothing and the server connection is not added. Is this a bug or can I work around this somehow?

Can anyone please post a working download link for the "TFS Plug-in for Eclipse" plugin ? The install button doesn't work in Eclipse Juno and in Eclipse Marketplace the TFS-Plugin is also not shown.

With a new TFS 2012 support for GIT as the source repository, can this plug-in will support the TFS-GIT source repository. Will it continue to provide all the features like change set traceability, gated check-in etc., to TFS-GIT?

I tried the new TFS plugin in Juno, cannot get it to work when server requires certificate. It always fails with "The page requires a client certificate" in the ssl debug log (and 403 presented to the user). The old TFS plugin works fine under same Eclipse/ssl configuration.

where is 'r' in 'dl.microsoft.com' ?

I receive the following error message when trying to install this plug-in.
Unable to read repository at http://dl.micosoft.com/eclipse/tfs/.http://dl.micosoft.com/eclipse/tfs/ is not a valid repository location.
If I go to that URL I just get "Error. Page cannot be displayed. Please contact your service provider for more details." so I'm guessing the hosting is down for the actual plugin.
