I have just upgraded to VS2015 and I am experiencing an issue I have not seen before. Using an existing solution under source control, I am able to modify files and they get picked up as pending changes ready to check in to TFS.
However, I add a new file (Test.cs as an example in this screenshot), it is not picked up as a new file.
I am required to right-click it and click "Add files to Source Control"
This has never been an issue before. I would like everything I add as a new file to be picked up as a pending change. How can I make this happen? I have not seen this before in previous Visual Studio versions.
I can confirm that this issue is the same on another machine. Also, the new file is not picked up in "Promote Candidate Changes" either.
If I then click "Add file to Source Control", I get this message.
"The selected file is ignored. Add it to source control anyway?"
My .tfignore file just has a directive to ignore packages, so I don't think this file is the problem.
How can I get my settings back on track?
I have noticed that this only happens to the "Release" branch of my workspace. All other branches behave as expected. Furthermore, if I then take a branch "Release" and call it "Release1", the issue goes away entirely!
Do branches with the specific name "Release" take on any special functionality in TFS?
