WSPBuilder now supports x64

The WSPTools now supports 64 bit systems. Actually its only the Cablib.dll that have been build in x64 mode, the .NET code is still x86 but works fine on a Windows Server x64. If you are using the WSPTools source code on a x64 system, you have to use the Cablib.dll x64 version from the binary package.

Happy WSP Building :D

WSPBuilder now including WSPDeploy

Finally I got around to post the latest version of WSPBuilder. There has been some changes in this version regarding how the Visual Studio project is setup. The project is now called WSPTools because there are more than one tool (Dooh) :D

I will like to thank Chris Doty for creating the WSPDeploy project. The new tool is basically a console app. that can deploy SharePoint solutions. The good thing about it is that WSPDeploy uses a library and therefore makes it easy to create a winform app. on top of it.

Chris Doty, if you come around Copenhagen, Denmark one day, I'll like to buy you a beer! Cheers

The release

This release has primarily been about the auto detection of Security Attributes and is now supported to some degree. But there are still a lot of issues to be solved. Like it can only detect the first Attribute and use this, all other attributes of the same type gets discarded. Therefore if you are not sure of what you are doing with the Security Attributes, use the Global Assembly Cache instead.
