So it does. I swear it was working when I put it up.

I'm fixing it now.

Are there going to be any changes to the build system in v6?
Improvements to how the MSBuild task accesses the database?
Better support for build configuration?

We don't have any specific improvements planned for the MSBuild task. What did you have in mind? Sorry if you've already posted something I've forgotten about, please link to it.

Use of build variables and parameters comes to mind :twisted: , evaluation of macros, etc. all inside the .saproj file, which in the end means no more project file but a .target file instead. Would make it really a lot easier to setup SA projects with outputs from other results of the build process, depending on build type.

And also that little problem of multiple invocations of the SA build task which reuses the database connection instead of having one for each instance would be nice to see improved (yes, i still have this problem occasionally and its always related to other extensions)

I would also like to be able to configure SA without having an assembly ready. Often I know what I want but I need it to happen in the build pipeline, and not always I have the intermediate executable available. In those cases I have to create the project by hand and cant use the GUI.

Oh yes and PLEASE: make the GUI remember and use paths already selected to resolve references. Nothing more annoying than having to select 10 times a folder for 10 assemblies which are in the same folder. Argh. :x

Another thing that comes to mind now is the HintPath. A project specific HintPATH would be great instead of a assembly specific reference.
Something like
Code: Select all
<SearchPath>$(ProjectDir)/References</SearchPath>

would be just great to find assemblies used in the current project without specifying each one with full path.

Not yet. It's getting close to the top of the pile now though.
