  • Blog Post: DSL 2010 Feature Dives: T4 Preprocessing - Part One - Rationale

    Strictly, this isn't a DSL 2010 feature, but a general Visual Studio 2010 feature; T4 is only coupled organizationally to DSL Tools, not technically, but it fits into our current announcements, so I won't worry about that too much.
