Nice work!  It's great to see 1.0.0 released.  I tried it out a while back and I was able to import and build a sample project, and I also successfully built and released from Apache Continuum, a continuous integration server. 

I thought I'd write up a proper review and open some issues, but I'm not going to have time in the near future.  Best I can do is paste the notes I kept, and hope they're somewhat useful. :)

From ... which file do I choose?  what do I do with it after I download it?

"mvn npanday.plugin:maven-vsinstaller-plugin:install" at the command line would not work for me, I had to use the installer.

Are there any docs on what the installer is going to do to my system?

The installer says it will install to the following folder and suggests your ~/.m2/repository directory.
 - What happens if I change it to c:\Program Files\NPanday 1.0.0 ?
 - Doesn't it put files somewhere else for the VS Addin, and also in the GAC?

The tab order is messed up in the Generate POM dialog.

When importing a project, I entered org.apache.continuum.examples for the groupId, and it incorrectly capitalized the first letter.

The elements are out of order in the generated <parent> section of pom.xml.  groupId should come before artifactId.

It keeps adding a WebReferences folder to my class library project, which is not webapp related at all.
