Azure DevOps Server 2020 RC1 Released

Microsoft announced Azure DevOps Server 2020 RC1, which brings a large number of useful new features.
 
Highlights of the release include continuous deployment in YAML, auditing for Azure Repo events, parent Work Item filter on the task board and sprint backlog, new Test Plan page, rich editing for code wiki pages, and pipeline failure and duration reports.
 
The team said that this is a go-live release, so you can install it on production servers.
 
Azure DevOps Server now offers a unified YAML experience so developers can configure each of their pipelines to do CI, CD, or CI and CD together. YAML CD features introduce many new advanced features that are available for all collections using multi-stage YAML pipelines. 
 
The team said that the parent context is now available within your Kanban board as a new field for work item cards. Developers can now add the Parent field to their cards. So now you can bypass the need to use workarounds like tags and prefixes.

The team has also added events for Repos that can be consumed via the Azure DevOps auditing tab in the collection settings. This enables you to view events for policies when they are created, removed, modified, or bypassed. Moreover, developers can also view events for repositories when they are created, renamed, soft-deleted, destroyed, or when the default branch changed.
