I am very pleased to announce the availability of the Sandcastle project with source code at http://www.codeplex.com/Sandcastle. The source code can be downloaded from the Releases tab at http://www.codeplex.com/Sandcastle/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=13873 and also from the Source code tab at http://www.codeplex.com/Sandcastle/SourceControl/ListDownloadableCommits.aspx.
Last month I blogged about the removal of Sandcastle project from Codeplex at http://blogs.msdn.com/sandcastle/archive/2008/06/06/sandcastle-project-removed-from-codeplex.aspx. and asked for your feedback. It is very clear from the emails I recieved from all of you and from various blogs that publishing the source code is the right thing to do for the Sandcastle customers. I thank you for this thread http://www.codeplex.com/Sandcastle/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=29085 and for all the great community efforts and support around Sandcastle and it’s adoption rates.
I also would like to thank Sam Ramji, Scott Stein and Sara Ford from Microsoft for being strong advocates of the open source community.
Thank you again for all for your patience. Please feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly regarding any questions. Cheers.
