CombineXPOs official version now in beta

If you are using a version control system and want an automated build process, I have some great news for you. Microsoft has just published a beta version of CombineXPOs, which is a small utility required in the build process. For more information see here:

    @Flemming: The CombineXPOs tool is required to create an automated build process. It is primarily concatenating the XPO files and ensuring the head/footer markers are kept correctly. Besides this it ensure the ordering of the elements in the resulting file is optimized for importing.

    The Objekts will be reordered to import correctly.

    But my question ist: Is it able to pack C# Projects? Since they are not stored as XPOs in Version Control System, i assume it is not possible to pack them into the generated XPO. In this case it is quite useless for real build scenarios.

    Hi Michael

    Could you perhaps explain the benefit of this (apart from concatenating a bunch of files into one). I can't fint a good explanation elsewhere…
