TfsBuildLab v1.0 is out there !!!

Finally we are feature complete as we intended it to be from the start (download it from here) we missed out intended deadline by almost 3 weeks :( (before 22/9) but for a sparetime project it still is decent... We have now been dog fooding TfsBuildLab in production since 2007-04-24 on a several projects the largest of them consisting of 5 parallel development branches each containing aproximately 10 000 source files.

Some statistics since the start (didn't have the time to do the graphs this time):

2998 Automatic cleanups
1554 Scheduled builds
1359 Continous integration builds

And here's how it looks over time:

* A report for displaying statistics from the triggers and retention policies.
* Support for overriding build script parameters both for CI and queued builds.

* Support for configuring retention policies based on build quality.
* Performance improvements by introducing caching
