Please support Visual Studio 2013 and TFS 2013
My team loves this feature for Snagit so much that we are missing it greatly. I feel like a spoiled little rich kid who had their Mercedes taken away!...Please consider extending Team System output to VS 2013 and TFS 2013 soon! Thanks.

Any progress about TFS 2013 (2015) in the meantime?
I'm also very interested.

I would like to throw my name in the hat also. We recently upgraded to MS Visual Studio 2013 Shell (Integrated) and I would love to be able to get the connectivity back again. Thanks!

It's really annoying that this output for TFS2013 / 15 is not working. I've used it A LOT!!! :(

It's 2016.  MS Feedback client can drop into any version of SnagIt, but SnagIt should be leading the industry and the "industry" uses TFS.  I know SnagIt has a very robust API that can skate circles around other screen capture programs, but there are a growing number of them that have direct, and CURRENT, interfaces to TFS.  TFS 2015 (both on premise and VSTS) need to be supported or you'll force the big fish (corporations) to go with another tool.
Summary:  SnagIt is the best, I don't want anything else.  An executive proposal to upgrade 1,000 users to v13 without integrated TFS 2015 support will be laughed at when the Feedback Client is free.

Even suggesting that you have the best API (I've read it and it is good) will be laughed at because it now multiplies the cost.  Take for example a United States Bank that has more regulators than you can shake a stick at; they are risk averse.  One can't pitch a freeware/Codeplex solution for TFS 2015 integration because there is no vendor behind it.  That would mean I'd have to tie the integration to TFS 2015 to an internally driven and funded development, Information Security review, Vendor Management Review, and an annual budget for QA, platform certification, and packaging project.  This list dwarfs the cost of the software.

Example:  It took 18 months for me to get the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint add-ins approved, tested, and packaged.  That was for the SnagIt built and supported add-ins.

Forget cloud-based outputs because Information Security will shoot that down in an instant.

Come on SnagIt - LEAD!

It seems like SnagIt is deciding to lead by giving users less and less.
