February CTP of DSL Tools is live in the Visual Studio 2005 SDK February 2006 CTP


I’m pleased to announce that DSL Tools is fully integrated into the February 2006 CTP of the Visual Studio 2005 SDK V2 which is now live at http://affiliate.vsipmembers.com/affiliate/downloadfiles.aspx
 
This means that there’s now only one download required for DSL Tools customers to get the SDK, Tools, Documentation and Samples.
 
The integration of all our piece parts is the major change in this release, but there are one or two bug fixes and a new sample showing how to create a custom XML Directive Processor for T4 Text Templates.
 
Don’t worry though, we aren’t slowing down on features.  We’ve been super-busy with some really major goodies for our NEXT release.  As Stuart has mentioned in our forum, expect to see:
  • A revised, cleaner modeling API
  • Single file format and complete visual designer for all aspects of a DSL (yeah baby)
  • Clean, domain-specific serialization of models
  • Port Shapes

    Do port shapes support a mechanism like the portdetailswindow ? What is your plan for this release ?

    Thank you.

    Hi Alan,

    Portshapes are just shapes, nothing more or less.

    However, its perfectly feasible to create your own toolwindows to implement a details style window.

    We won’t generate one of those, but it is on our list to try and put a toolwindow sample together.
