This is an unsupported beta. v5.6 is the latest supported release.

Partial List of Changes for Release 6.0 (see the Change History for the complete list):
  • NEW: Granular control of all artifacts on app start - control individual orchestrations, send ports, send port groups and receive locations during app start
  • NEW: Completely redesigned IIS integration - native IIS 7.x/8.x support, separate control of app pools and apps, exclusion filter on MSI packaging, more...
  • NEW: Visual Studio menu item to decode port bindings XML in one step - no more ElementTunnel.exe command lines!
  • UPDATED: Settings spreadsheet properties work anywhere in the project file - declaratively use MSBuild properties defined by the settings spreadsheet without MSBuild order-of-evaluation problems
  • UPDATED: Many internal optimizations and changes to take advantage of MSBuild 4.x
  • REMOVED: BizTalk 2006, 2006 R2 and 2009 are no longer supported - support ended with v5.6

Reviews for this release

IIS integration rocks in 6.0. So much more control over your deployment, including App pool management. Never use VDIR again.
