In September, there was a post on the blog that introduced the VSPackage Builder, a tool for VS extension developers that provides a designer experience over the Visual Studio Command Table (VSCT) file.

In particular, Package Builder makes it easy to add commands and UI to the VSCT incrementally – a task that’s proven somewhat challenging to many extenders. Another article, by Ty Anderson, that shows off those incremental features was published recently on DevX.com. Check it out!

You can download VSPackage Builder from the Visual Studio Gallery.
