IMPORANT INFORMATION. PLEASE READ.
Uninstall the current v188.8.131.52 production release or the prior v1.9.3.x alpha or beta release before installing the latest beta release.
If not, you may end up with two versions installed in the Add/Remove Programs dialog that will conflict.This is a beta release.
With this release, the Visual Studio package now matches the standalone GUI with regard to features and functionality. Projects can now be managed completely from within Visual Studio without having to open a copy of the project in the standalone GUI.SHFB Version Number:
The core build engine and standalone GUI have received minor changes to make them compatible with the Visual Studio extension package. Until it is out of beta, the version number of the core build engine will be kept at the current production release version number (currently v184.108.40.206) so that third-party plug-ins and build components will continue to work with it unchanged. The new SHFB Project Launcher tool (SHFBProjectLauncher.exe) along with the most recent version release notes in the help file can be used to determine the current beta release version number.
For more information about the extension package, see the Visual Studio 2010 Package
help file topic.
