MSBuild Sidekick v 2.3 is released

Filed under: MSBuild Sidekick — eugenez @ 11:16 am

We are happy to announce the release of version 2.3 of MSBuild Sidekick!

Many of you would remember “How would you spend $100 on MSBuild?” poll published on MSBuild Team Blog. MSBuild users were asked to vote on most valuable future features in MSBuild; and while we could not improve MSBuild engine performance or add inline tasks support we did implement visual debugger for MSBuild! MSBuild Sidekick v2.3 is now the one-stop solution for all your debugging needs such as stepping through the build, inspecting locals and setting breakpoints.

The new features in MSBuild Sidekick v2.3 are:

  • Visual debugger (you can analyze build sequence using diagram) with breakpoints support and integrated Globals/Autos windows for viewing properties/items values during debugging

  • Customized editors and integrated online help for MSBuild Extension Pack tasks
  • Ability to cancel a running build
  • Ability to edit Project element raw XML
  • Auto-detection of latest .NET Framework on tool installation

Please note, that for all registered users the upgrade to new version is free of charge; otherwise the license can be purchased online.

Please see product page for additional information; also make sure to have a look at walkthroughs detailing the application usage and the user manual.
