Release Notes

Beta1 is ready

The first beta release of Managed Menu Extensions consists of 3 MSI installers.

1. ManagedMenuExtensionsSetup.msi - this installs the base functionality of the Managed Menu Extensions. Needed for the other installers. Also installs the tool - "Add-In Manager" for Enabling and Disabling the AddIns.
2. ManagedMenuVS2008Setup.msi - this installs the VS-AddIn that makes Managed Menu Extensions work with Visual Studio 2008 beta2
3. ManagedMenuAddInSamplesSetup.msi - this installs 2 sample ManagedMenuExtensions Add-Ins.

To Make a new AddIn follow these steps:

1. Make a new ClassLibrary.
2. Add a reference to ManagedMenuAddInViews.dll which is installed in the GAC
3. Implement the abstract class MenuManagerAddInView and the abstract class MenuItemView (see how by downloading the Sourcecode and looking in the samples)
4. Place the new dll in the folder <InstallationDirectory>\AddIns\<YourFolder> where InstallationDirectory is the folder you installed ManagedMenuExtensions in, and <YourFolder> is an arbitrary foldername chosen by you.

The Installations has been tested on Windows XP sp2 with Visual Studio 2008 beta2 installed. It has only been tested with a user that had administrative rights.

What works now is adding the menus to the Solution explorer of Visual Studio, Click Events also works. But not all the information is transfered by the click handler yet. This will be part of the next release.
