the different icon for builddefitions that their latest builds are not successfull


When you have several builds, for being continiously integrated, you should continiously monitor breaked builds and follow them to become succeeded. So if you could see the status of latest build as the icon of its builddefinition or you could filter the builddefinitions by their latest build status, you increase the productivity of monitoring builds. I suggest that the icon of builddefitions that their latest builds are not successfull has different collor.

That is a good suggestion. We will look into it.
Right now we rely on the built in icons, not sure if we can just change color, but must define new icons. Anyway, that is doable.
One concern is that this will require a request (or set of requests) to the tfs server. The extension do no such requests today to keep it as fast as possible. To make this work, these requests could work in the background, but it increases complexity.
This suggestion could also apply to the Community Build Manager, see http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/16bafc63-0f20-4cc3-8b67-4e25d150102c
