Highlights of WiX v3.0.4707.0

WiX v3.0.4707.0 was released on Friday, 7-November-08. You can download it from http://wix.sourceforge.net/releases/3.0.4707.0/.

New features

  • Not exactly a feature except for those working on it, but Jason did the thankless work of merging the SDK source code so that VS2005 and VS2008 Votive builds share the same code.
  • I added attributes to WixGamingExtension’s Game element to support using separate files for the game executable (for shortcuts and game tasks, via the ExecutableFile attribute) and the GDF resource (the GdfResourceFile attribute). This enables use of WixGamingExtension for XNA games.
