Inside the "Quick Add Reference” extension
World of VS has just released the “Quick Add Reference” extension which should save you time and give you a much more nicer experience when coding with VS.
Add and Remove list of references the ultra simple way
When you use VS to initially create a project based on any of the several templates available like Class Library, WPF Application, Web Application, Office Addin and the list goes on, you already get some of the basic ‘must have’ references for your project automatically added thanks to the templating mechanism, i.e. you get PresentationCore.dll et friends added to your project every time you create a WPF-based project.

Just in case you missed the news, the ASP.NET MVC team is using T4 to generate code (yeah!)
The way they have integrated T4 in their own product is not what we would have expected (they wrote their own T4 host) so we took our Visual T4 Editor and Visual T4 Code Generator bits and added them knowledge about this custom host in order to offer the best possible tooling experience.
New Blog About Code Generation With T4 in Visual Studio!
While developing the Visual T4 Code Generator edition my team and I are constantly having discussions on how the best code generation tool in earth should look like and also about more “abstract” code generation chores not necessarily related to the product we’re developing.
