Microsoft has released their new MSF Agile
Framework.  It can be downloaded from gotdotnet.com.

“Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) Agile is a
scenario-driven, context-based, agile software development process for building
and improving .NET and other object-oriented applications. MSF Agile directly
incorporates practices for handling quality of service requirements such as
performance and security. It is also context-based and uses a context-driven
approach to determine how to operate the project. This approach helps create an
adaptive process that overcomes the boundary conditions (such as project size
and system criticality) of most agile software development processes while
achieving the objectives set out in the vision of the
project.

MSF Agile is highly customizable, scalable, and will
be fully integrated with Visual Studio 2005 Team System. The tooling and
processes will work together to provide a more productive user experience than
the process or tooling could provide alone. This is because both tooling and
processes are built using the same meta-model. In other words, MSF harvests
proven guidance from inside and outside of Microsoft and provides a seamless
experience with Visual Studio 2005 Team System for process automation and
guidance within the software development life cycle.
