This minor update adds some new features and fixes some problems. You can download it from here.

What's new in VSdocman version 6.1:

  1. NEW: You can switch edited or compiled project directly in the main VSdocman window. There's a new drop-down button next to the project name. You no longer need to close the window and switch the project in Solution explorer.
  2. NEW: Added new <threadsafety> XML comment tag which lets you describe thread safety of a class or structure.
  3. NEW: Added new <permission> XML comment tag which lets you document the access of a member.
  4. NEW: A search box at the top of "Select reference" dialog in comment editor. This allows for quick filtering in a class hierarchy.
  5. NEW: User gets a warning when the main window is cancelled and there are any unsaved changes.
  6. CHANGE: In topic titles and Index entries, the parameters of overloaded methods are displayed in a short form instead of a long form. For example, Method1(StringBuilder) instead of Method1(System.Text.StringBuilder).
  7. CHANGE: Changes to a project profile or preferences in VSdocman window are no longer automatically saved when you press any of the "Compile ..." buttons. You must explicitly press OK button when closing the window.
  8. CHANGE: Unused F# tabs are removed from syntax declaration and code examples in html_msdn10_lightweight and chm_msdn10_lightweight output formats.
  9. FIX: Overloaded methods with generic constructed types as parameters were not listed in generated TOC. They were only accessible from Index. For example: method1(List<int> x) and method1(List<string> x).
  10. FIX: When you opened an existing XML comment with an image in comment editor, the image was not shown.
  11. FIX: If a user selected a file in a sub-folder of "External files folder" with "Select reference" dialog in comment editor, generated relative path was incorrect.
  12. FIX: In C#, if an XML comment or code element's attributes or element declaration itself was inside #if ... #endif, then the XML comment was not recognized.
