Feb CTP of Add-In Pipeline Generator is Released on Codeplex


We’ve just release the first update to our Pipeline Generator to Codeplex: https://www.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ProjectName=clraddins&ReleaseId=9222


This release addresses many of the issues/suggestions the community filed with the first release. Additionally it adds support for defining structs in your contract assemblies. For some extensibility points structs will be an invaluable tool as they allow you to pass large amounts of data across the AppDomain/Process boundary much faster than you can with reference objects.


For a complete list of changes see the release notes in the linked project.

    I’m getting an exception in a "DisplayError" when I process a contract project in my main solution. The same project causes no problems in a test solution.

    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Could you tell me what’s wrong, please?

    Thanks!
