VSdocman 9.8 released

We are glad to announce that the new VSdocman 9.8 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 new modern chm_msdn2019 output format, fixes .NET Core 3.1 incompatibility issue and some other little problems. You can download it from here.

What's new in VSdocman version 9.8:

  1. NEW: New chm_msdn2019 output format was added. It has a modern look like the current online MSDN.
  2. NEW: The command line utility VSdocmanCmdLine.exe displays the VSdocman version and the version of Visual Studio that is used in the background.
  3. FIX: Visual Studio could crash when VSdocman tried to compile documentation for .NET Core 3.1 projects. This could also happen also for other project types but only in very specific cases. For example, an UWP application that targets Win 1809 and uses HockeySDK.UWP 4.1.6 Nuget package. The problem was related to a VS issue and occurred only when some specific versions of assemblies were referenced by the documented project. For example, it was not present with some .NET Core 3.1 updates.
  4. FIX: A "dead link" warning occurred for <see> or <seealso> links in some cases.
    Case 1: the cref pointed to a method with a ref/out (ByRef in VB) array parameter, for example cref="Method(ref int[])".
    Case 2: the cref pointed to a method with a multidimensional array parameter, for example cref="Method(int[,])".
    Case 3: the cref contained some of the language specific data types - sbyte, uint, ulong, ushort in C# and Date, SByte, UInteger, ULong, UShort in VB.
    Case 4: the cref was a link to a constructor in a language specific format, for example "Object.Object()" in C# or "Object.New()" in VB.
