VSdocman 6.4 released

A new version 6.4 of VSdocman has been released. VSdocman is a  Visual Studio 2012/2010/2008/2005 add-in for a quick commenting and automatic generation of technical documentation from your C# and VB .NET projects. For more information go to VSdocman home page .

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

What's new in VSdocman version 6.4:

  1. NEW: Automatically update content of the comment editor (opened as modeless window) as you go through your source code. You don't need to click on the editor to see the comments of the current code element. This may slow down the IDE. You can turn on or off this feature in Options > Comment Editor > Editor Window.
  2. NEW: Improved functionality of user tags. In addition to a tag name and its generated section heading, you can now define also a default text that will be placed in documentation if the tag in your XML comment is empty.
  3. CHANGE: When the cursor is inside XML doc comments, starting the comment editor or adding an XML comment will be executed for a code element to which the XML comment belongs, e.g. a method. Previously it was a containing parent type, such as a class or a namespace.
  4. CHANGE: If the summary section in the comment editor is empty, than an empty <summary></summary> comment block is not generated anymore.
  5. FIX: If method parameters were decorated with attributes, the attributes were not shown or the parameters were shown incorrectly in generated Syntax section.
  6. FIX: If you selected install for "Everyone" and not for "Just Me" during VSdocman installation, this option was ignored and VSdocman was installed just for current user. This caused problems especially for automated command line builds, because they are usually executed under different user. This issue was present only in versions 6.2 and 6.3.
  7. FIX: Sometimes, the WYSIWYG comment editor, when opened as modeless window, didn't show code element's comment and stayed empty.
  8. FIX: When the command line utility VSdocmanCmdLine.exe was stopped prematurely (with console close button, CTRL+C, process kill...), an orphaned devenv.exe process might be left unterminated.
  9. FIX: When generated HTML documentation was stored on a web server and it was viewed with Chrome, then the TOC was always collapsed when different topic was selected.
