MSBuild is the [extensible, scalable,
transparent] next generation build engine and platform for Visual Studio
.NET. Many of our sharpest PMs, developers, testers, and yes, even
writers, are feverishly working on this project.
A number of folks with whom I've discussed MSBuild--including
several enterprise development consultants in the field--believe that it
just might be the single most important feature innovation in our pipeline.
And if you consider how many one-off build tools and convoluted
prescriptive build processes have been developed (or evolved) since
the release of VS.NET 2002, it's hard to argue with them.
Now, YOU can get a Sneak
Peak of MSBuild at the PDC in LA. Thanks to Chris for

build engine that delivers scalability and flexibility for the entire range of
build scenarios, from the basics to complex build-lab scenarios. Drill into the
capabilities of this universal build engine for Visual Studio "Whidbey" and the
"Longhorn" operating system--from its XML-based persistence model and
human-readable file format, to its ability to assist in the creation of build
steps and processes for Visual Studio projects."
