Featured Improvements in NPanday 1.2

  • Improved type names available (dotnet-library, etc.), and previous types are deprecated (library, etc.)
  • MSI-based installer for the Visual Studio Addin and Maven plugins
  • MVC project type support
  • Rewrite of documentation to be more complete
  • Numerous bug fixes and other improvements

Known Issues

  • When installing NPanday using the MSI package, the version will not be displayed in the output window or About... box
  • If ~/.m2/uac/gac_msil doesn't exist when importing a project, a warning will be displayed. This can be safely ignored.
  • If there is no access to a remote repository, the release of the NPanday plugins to retrieve can not be determined. This can be avoided by adding the version to plugins in your project's POM.

Reviews for this release

Excellent, I'm primarily a dotnet guy but have been working on java/maven project recently, as part of the project I have been developing a testing tool (C#) which is at 44 projects, kinda to big for the IDE. Was gonna use NAnt until I found this. Great tool, but what's even better is that the instructions on building are detailed and correct. Keep up the good work. Thanks Dave
