Today, I finally released v2.0 of the code comment checking policy for Team Foundation Server (TFS) / Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) 2005. Two major new features: firstly, you can extend the policy to do more restricitive checks (i.e. verify that the comments are actually in line with the number of parameters). Secondly, you now get an MSBuild task to compute "code comment coverage" during an automated build - independent of VSTS / TFS!

As for future versions, it is already in source control - take the following team project for example:

Currently, you can turn on / off CCCP only for the entire team project. However, checking a unit test project or a Windows Forms smart client is rather pointless (in my opinion at least):

It is much more helpful for library projects that are to be used by different in-house or external customers, where with the help of eg Sandcastle you can create a nice help file. Therefore, vNext will sport a "Paths to check" feature:

I decided to go with include instead of exclude because it is much more explicit with regards what is being checked and what not. Currently, this is only available via source download.

"The Sony Ericsson Update Service for Windows Vista™ will be available for download on www.sonyericsson.com/updateservice in September." You ain't serious, right? This is more than annoying simply because I don't have a single computer with XP any more - not that SE software ever worked on XP either.

Jimmy Li's article Understanding the TFS Cube gives great insight into the warehouse for Team Foundation Server. Well worth your time if you want to dive into analyzing your projects.

A default install of Windows Server 2003 ships with a locked-down Internet Explorer, in a so-called enhanced security configuration. Getting rid of it was done via configuring the Windows components. Not so on Windows Server 2008. At first of course I looked in all the wrong places (after all who reads a text they "know"?), until I found it in Server Manager:

You can turn it on / off separately for administrator or users:

Why did I turn it off? Because when it is on, you cannot view IIS7 FREB log files - the XSL has code in it that won't run in any browser but IE. At least at Beta 3 of Longhorn, that is.

The recently released version of CruiseControl.NET has a small issue with MSBuild Output in the Web dashboard: Unable to load transform: c:\ccnet\webdashboard\xsl\msbuild.xsl. A fix can be found in this thread in the fourth post. The reason to upgrade to 1.3? CC.NET now runs on .NET 2.0 (it has been ported), and it has a feature I want to try: integration queues.

On May 10th, we recorded the interview on SharpDevelop that is now live on .NET Rocks. The interview starts around minute ten in this show. I tried to give some background on project history (if you really, really want all the details: look here), some of its features, where we stand today in comparison to VS Express, what's up next (hint: version 2.2 end of this month), and what the near future holds for SharpDevelop.

After the interview I realized that I mentioned most devs only by their first name, which happens if you are part of the team for nearly seven years! Therefore, I'd like to formally apologize for any confusion this might create and point to the development team page on our Wiki. There, you will find Daniel Grunwald (current technical lead), Mike Krüger (project founder now working for Novell on MonoDevelop, read an interview with Mike), Matt Ward, David Srbecky and the many others who make and made SharpDevelop the #1 open source IDE for .NET. Thanks guys!

Microsoft released a UAC demo. It is just basic process elevation (read: save the time by not downloading it), which I described in more detail (with more reuseability) in UAC Elevation in Managed Code: Starting Elevated Processes.

I have been patiently waiting for this one, quote from the download page: “Acropolis” builds on the rich capabilities of Microsoft Windows and the .NET Framework, including Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), by providing tools and pre-built components that help developers quickly assemble applications from loosely-coupled parts and services.

Today marks the offical day of me switching from Eudora to Outlook 2007. I have been a long-time fan of Eudora, and it served me well over the years (oh glory days when my mail program plus mailboxes did fit on a single diskette).

With Eudora being end of life, I had to make a decision which mail client I will be using in the future - and I have to say that every single one had its moments (ever enjoyed the fun of querying multiple mailboxes on the same mail server in Thunderbird?).

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
