Stuart Kent - Building developer tools at Microsoft - @sjhkent
Having just returned from vacation, I thought I'd update folks about the V1 release of DSL Tools. This will be shipped as part of the Visual Studio 2005 SDK Version 3 in the first part of September.
We have signed, sealed and delivered our code to the VS SDK team who are now just wrapping up. There will be a significant new documentation drop at the same time, although we will continue to update the documentation until the end of the year.
Apart from bug fixes, the main feature in this release is a completed Dsl Designer for editing .dsl definitions.
I'll post again as soon as the toolkit has been released.
A while back I posted about how useful I find storyboards in the specification process.
Now there's a tool integrated with VSTS for doing storyboarding. Check it out at http://www.stpsoft.co.uk/story/.
