Sandcastle November CTP released
About two weeks ago, Microsoft have released a new CTP for Sandcastle. For those still in the dark, Sandcastle is the Microsoft tool for generating documentation based on XML tags in VB.Net and C# code.
This new CTP fixes a number of issues found in earlier CTP and introduces the ability to define custom tags. Custom tags have been a very powerful option in the NDoc era to add your own XML tags to the documentation process. Sandcastle now supports some of the custom tags defined by NDoc, as well as the option to create your own. Another new option is the improved support for Firefox. You can download the new CTP here.
A very powerful and useful addition to Sandcastle is the Sandcastle Help File Builder. This tool features an interface which looks very much like NDoc. It also allows you to import NDoc projects and Visual Studio projects. It really makes creating help files a simple task. If you want to use Sandcastle to create help files, you should also download this tool.
