Sandcastle September 2007 CTP released
I think it was announced almost three weeks ago, but it is finally released today. There are obviously a number of bug fixes, as well as some new features in this release. A full list of bug fixes, new features and changes can be found here. If you want to use Sandcastle, I suggest you download and install the following items.
Visual Studio 2005 SDK Version 4.0
. Make sure you install this first. It contains an old version of Sandcastle which will be replaced by the new CTP. It also contains the 2.0 help compiler.
Sandcastle - September 2007 Community Technology Preview (CTP)
. This is the actual Sandcastle CTP. After installation, make sure that you run the following command to generate reflection files for the .Net 2.0 framework: msbuild fxReflection.proj /Property:NetfxVer=2.0 /Property:PresentationStyle=%1
. This command must be run in the sandcastle/examples/sandcastle folder on your local system.
.or Sandcastle Help File Builder
to make building help files a lot simpler. Be aware though, that these applications are open-source projects and may need to be changed before they fully support the new Sandcastle CTP. From experience, I know that it will normally take less than a week for these applications to be fully compatible with the latest CTP.
