May 8th Update: The final release of the VS 2005 Web Application Project is now live. You can learn more about it here.
The offiical "V1.0" release of the VS 2005 Web Application Project Option is now built and is in "escrow" as we sanity test the final release before publishing it on the web. Our hope is to publish it on the web for immediate download this coming Monday or Tuesday. This new build has a bunch of final improvements and bug fixes included within it, including:
- Team Build Support with VSTS
- Strongly-typed access to resources defined within the app_globalresources directory
- Custom Build Tool Action Support
- Edit and Continue Support (this one was an un-planned feature we snuck in and allows you to dynamically change code during debug sessions)
It also then has a bunch of bug fixes for bugs people reported with last month's release candidate build.
Only a few more days now...
P.S. As I've mentioned earlier, the VS 2005 Web Application Project option will also be included in VS 2005 SP1 later this year. We are releasing this supported web download version of it earlier so that you will be able to use it immediately.
