Today is the one year anniversary of the WiX toolset being released as Open Source to SourceForge. Since then there have been over 120,000 downloads. More importantly the community has filed 241 bugs and we’ve fixed almost 200 of them. The mailing list membership continues to grow and there are a number of active members answering questions that pop-up. Even more amazing, a very rich tutorial has been written to help people new to the WiX toolset get ramped up.
Honestly, I can’t believe that it has already been a year. The toolset stability has improved significantly but as I look forward I still see a lot of exciting opportunities. Personally, I think the next year of the WiX toolset will be more exciting than the last.
I also want to thank all of you who have made things interesting so far and hope we can keep things interesting going forward. Oh and keep coding… I am.
