Here is a list of additional tools or add-ins that I use on a regular basis when working with team foundation server or some of the visual studio components. Please note that this by no means an exhaustive list.
All Tools work for Visual Studio/TFS RTM and they are all free.
I will update this post when there are updates or new ones become available.

- May 17 2010: added the work item search
Tip: enter value –template in the search box to be able to modify searchtemplate.wiq. This makes it more powerful than the web access search (which only works on title and system.description).
- May 18 2010: added tfs admin security tool
Note: the only drawback is that it requires team explorer 2008 (team explorer 2008 + SP1 + forward capability pack for TFS 2010)
