As Bob Arnson recently noted, the WiX virtual team has been working on getting initial builds of WiX v3.5 posted to the SourceForge site. The build from last week, 3.5.0605.0, includes a couple of big new features contributed by some folks on the Visual Studio team at Microsoft:
- A version of Votive that integrates into the Visual Studio 2010 beta
- A new set of detection properties for .NET Framework 4 beta installation states in the WixNetfxExtension
- A new set of detection properties and registration custom actions for Visual Studio 2010 beta editions in the WixVsExtension
You can check out these new features starting in build 3.5.0605.0, which is available at http://wix.sourceforge.net/releases/3.5.0605.0/ on the WiX SourceForge site.
If you encounter any bugs with these new features, please report them on the WiX bug reporting site. If you have any questions about using these new features or about WiX in general, I encourage you to use the WiX mailing lists.
