Visual Studio extensions for Windows SharePoint Services v1.1
Posted by Fernando Felman on February 12, 2008
Funny, just as I publish the how to install VSeWSS on a workstation, the good guys from Redmond announced the new version. Main changes that I’m keen to investigate: bug fixes and features support. You can download the new version from here which now also comes with a user guide. Just like the previous version, you should install this new extensions on a local SharePoint machine. That is, unless you feel like hacking it. 🙂
And while we’re on the subject of MOSS, check out Javed Sikander’s video on OBA Composition Reference Toolkit on Channel 9. I’d really like to see where this thing is going to be in, say, another 2-3 months. I think it really has the potential of bringing forward the biggest advantage of MOSS which, in opinion, is a rich platform for custom collaboration solutions. This toolkit is a huge step towards implementing the concepts I’m used to see from the patterns & practices group to match the SharePoint development world. Very cool.
