Developer ID Description
Me Based on a wix-users report, I added debug output logging to the WixUIValidatePath custom action (normal MSI logging doesn't work because it's a custom action triggered from a DoAction control event). I also added the WIXUI_DONTVALIDATEPATH property to suppress WixUIValidatePath calls.
Aaron Added documentation annotations for deprecated elements in wix.xsd so information will appear in IntelliSense and not just the .chm.
Brian Added the capability for heat to take an extension via the command line similar to how the other tools do using -ext Extension.
Me Fixed user-reported typo in fr-FR localization.
Neil 2609695 Add support for harvesting performance counters
Eric 2790472 "error CNDL0288" using localized merge modules
Mike 2792009 XmlFile crashes in XPath mode when file doesn't exist
