This release supports the Sandcastle June 2010 Release (v2.6.10621.1). It includes full support for generating, installing, and removing MS Help Viewer files. This new release is compiled under .NET 4.0, supports Visual Studio 2010 solutions and projects as documentation sources, and adds support for projects targeting the Silverlight Framework.03/26/2011 Refresh:
Uninstall SHFB, download the installer, and re-install SHFB to obtain the updated help file builder containing the following changes:
- Fixed a bug in the BuildHelp task that was causing some command line property overrides to be missed when building a project from the command line.
- Fixed a bug that caused the reflection file to be renamed incorrectly if it contained a UNC path with ".org" as part of one of the path elements.
- Images added to a project now use a default BuildAction of Image rather than Content.
- Added a simple file system watcher that watches for changed files and prompts to reload any that are open in the standalone GUI when it regains control. It will not do anything more than watch for changed files. It will not handle deletes, moves, renames, etc. This was implemented to facilitate editing files in the standalone GUI with the project open in Visual Studio until the VSPackage contains all of the required file editors.
This release uses the Sandcastle Guided Installation package used by Sandcastle Styles. Download and extract to a folder and then run SandcastleInstaller.exe
