As per Brian Keller’s message, the Visual Studio 2013 ALM Virtual Machine was recently upgraded to include the sample content and hands-on-labs / demo scripts which were previously introduced for Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 capabilities. This brings the total number of hands-on-labs and demo scripts which work with this VM to 24.
He also used this opportunity to address some fit-and-finish feedback we received on the initial release of the 2013 ALM VM, so it should be a nice improvement all around. As a reminder you can find the full list of ALM virtual machines here.

Automates various tasks across Team Projects in Team Foundation Server. If you find yourself managing multiple Team Projects for an organization and have recurring tasks and questions that repeat themselves over and over again, Team Project Manager probably has some answers for you.
Allows you to manage Team Foundation Server event subscriptions as well as help troubleshoot event job processing.
If you’ve read Grant’s blog you’ll know why this is convenient.
Deletes Team Foundation Server workspaces that have not been accessed in a number of days, along with their files locally on disk.
This is especially useful on build servers, where build definitions that have not run in a while can take up large amounts of disk space (which is not even cleaned up by build retention policies). Since it is a command-line tool, this cleanup can easily be automated as a Windows Scheduled Task.
Allows browsing the Team Foundation Server (non-version control) storage for TFS 2013 or above.
In case you’re wondering (like me) where the default build process templates are now being stored and what else is stored outside of version control.
