VSdocman 9.2 released

We are glad to announce that the new VSdocman 9.2 has been released. VSdocman is a  Visual Studio tool for a quick commenting and automatic generation of technical documentation from your C# and VB .NET source code files. For more information go to VSdocman home page .

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

What's new in VSdocman version 9.2:

  1. NEW: Improved custom topics. There are three types of custom topics, one of them was Chapter without text. This type is now extended to Topic or chapter without text. As a new thing, you can specify a target external file or URL that will be opened when such a topic is clicked in TOC.
  2. FIX: When a hyperlink to a URL was specified in the short format without a text, for example <see href="https://www.helixoft.com"/>, an incorrect text was generated for the link in the documentation, such as "https://com".
  3. FIX: When a generic C# method had a generic return type, then incorrect type parameters were produced in the XML comment or generated documentation. For example, for the method "IList<int> Method1<T1, T2>()", there was only one type parameter "int" instead of two type parameters "T1" and "T2". This only affected C#, not VB code.
  4. FIX: Better handling of situation, when compilation from command line with VSdocmanCmdLine.exe sometimes failed for .SDK style projects (.NET Core projects and .NET Standard projects). This is a confirmed issue in Visual Studio. This problem shows itself in that the generated documentation is empty, only custom topics are generated but no code documentation is compiled. As a temporary workaround, you can use new /solutionLoadedWait parameter of VSdocmanCmdLine.exe utility. See VSdocman manual for more information in Using VSdocman > Using VSdocman from Command Line.
