WiX v3.0.4116.0 was released on Friday, 16-May-08. You can download it from http://wix.sourceforge.net/releases/3.0.4116.0/.
- DTF, a framework for accessing the Windows Installer API from managed code and for writing managed-code custom actions, is now included in WiX. Wait, managed-code custom actions?! Yep. For details, see Rob’s announcement and Jason’s history-of-DTF post.
- WixFirewallExtension, a compiler extension and set of custom actions for registering firewall exceptions on Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003SP1, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.
- By default, files now get the “vital bit” (msidbFileAttributesVital).
- New properties in WixNetFxExtension allow detection of the Windows SDK: WINDOWSSDKCURRENTVERSIONDIR, WINDOWSSDKCURRENTVERSION, WINDOWSSDK60ADIR, WINDOWSSDK61DIR.
