Download the December 2011 Update of EWSEditor HERE.
Over a year has gone by since a public update to EWSEditor on the MSDN Code Gallery but it’s not been forgotten! The availability and popularity of Office 365 and Exchange Online make Exchange Web Services (and thus EWSEditor) even more relevant today as EWS becomes the primary mailbox access API for Exchange. Many of the folks I talk to these days are in the middle of redesigning their products to use EWS instead of MAPI.
When I first created EWSEditor, I was working on the support side of the business and thus my goal was to create a tool to help debug Exchange or fix client code. Now that I work on the consulting side of the business and talk more about best practices and architecture, I’m feeling the need to rework a lot of this code to “practice what I preach”. While this release doesn’t contain a huge amount of best practices refactoring, I plan to address this in the near future with additional updates to EWSEditor. This release is about getting the codebase healthier and to put some things in place to make it easier to add features in the future.
The biggest change of course is that EWSEditor has moved to CodePlex. Here is a summary of the other major changes and new features in the December 2011 update to EWSEditor….
