Build a sandcastle today - download the CTP
Sometimes codenames are just funny. Sandcastle seems to be one of these. So what's in a name?
You know both C# (since version 1.0) and VB.NET (since version 8.0 == 2005) support XML comments to document (the public parts of) your code. That's a great thing, but what you end up with is a just a big chunk of XML that you still have to transform to a *real* human-readable form, say HTML by applying an XSLT. Sandcastle overcomes this issue by providing you the tools to make this transition from code comments over XML (and trough reflection) to a real documentation package. It supports things like generics, works with all .NET languages, knows about compact framework projects, can do localization and integrates with VS2005.
Visit the Sandcastle Blog on MSDN and download the CTP over here. Just had a sneak peak over the technology and it looks promising so far.Del.icio.us
