What is the current status with compatibility between the admin tool 2.1 and the new TFS 2012?

Are there any known issues?

If there are, will there be a new release of the admin tool to address these issues?

Also, I'd love to see the next version support the Agile "team" concept.

Even though it's not really an admin/permission problem, I'd still love to see a grid of teams across team projects to make sure folks have the correct membership.

I just downloaded the main version and recompiled it in Visual Studio 2012 and this made the tool working for Team Foundation Server 2012. 

The configurations I performed were:

  • Added Active Directory groups 
  • Assigning roles for Team Foundation Server
  • Assigning roles for Reporting Services

The sharepoint integration is not yet tested by me because at the moment the TFS is not linked with a SharePoint.

I am not 100% sure that everything works perfectly so I would suggest some more testing.

I haven't countered any issues but I would like the suggestion of Richard (rhundhausen) to include the concept of team's in the tool.

I've just released v2.2 which supports installing on a machine with Team Explorer 2012 and working against a TFS2012 server.
