Visual Lint has been released
Thursday, February 28, 2008

We are pleased to be able to announce that Visual Lint has been released.

The following changes are included in this build:
  • Added (at customer request) support for additional includes within inherited property sheets (.vsprops files) under VS2002/VS2003/VS2005/VS2008.

  • Improved diagnostics when loading Intel C++ compiler (.icproj) projects under VS2002, VS2003, VS2005 and VS2008. This is necessary as some versions of the compiler suite have significant flaws in their integration of the compiler into the Visual Studio automation model which affect their compatibility with Visual Lint.

  • The "Projects" Analysis Configuration page now handles solution folders correctly.

  • Fixed a crash in the Analysis Results Display.

  • Visual C++ 6.0 project (.dsp) files containing only one project configuration are
    now parsed correctly.

  • Fixed a bug which could cause project analysis comand lines to be incorrectly generated if the project.lnt file failed to generate.

  • Corrected a bug in the parsing of intermediate file folders within Visual C++ projects.

  • Fatal errors during whole project analysis should now be reported correctly.

  • Fixed several potential resource leaks.

  • regsvr32.exe is now used for registering VisualLint.dll by the installer instead of RegisterDll.exe, which is now only provided for diagnostic purposes on Windows Vista.

  • Corrected a bug in the handling of upgrade keys.

  • Corrected minor bugs in the installer build.

Visual Studio Gallery
Saturday, February 09, 2008

I've just stumbled across (via Scott Dorman's blog) the Visual Studio Gallery - a new site showcasing products and extensions for Visual Studio, run as part of the Visual Studio Extensibility (VSX) effort.

Even at this early stage it looks like a very useful site - I found several potentially really useful products on there I didn't know about before.

I added an entry for Visual Lint to it last night:

Now all they need to do is make it work properly with Firefox (the entry appears clipped, and as you can't edit the HTML directly when creating an entry there isn't a lot to go on...). Oh well - you can't have everything, I guess.
