Frequently Asked Questions

Partial List of Changes for Release 5.6 (see the Change History for the complete list):
  • NEW: Support for BizTalk 2013 R2 - supports all BizTalk releases from 2009 to 2013 R2 including the BizTalk ESB Toolkit
  • UPDATED: SettingsFileGenerator.xml has been optimized to reduce the file size and simplify diff/merges; default location is now the project folder instead of the EnvironmentSettings folder
  • UPDATED: Enhanced control of BizTalk AppDomains allows configuration of one or more AppDomains with custom .NET config files and other settings
  • UPDATED: Custom MSI install paths are now embedded in the MSI's instead of requiring separate batch files
  • UPDATED: PDB's are no longer deployed to the GAC by default, which allows host instance restarts to happen later in the deployment process
  • UPDATED: Several WCF-WebHttp adapter XPaths are now recognized by ElementTunnel for encoding in the bindings file
  • DEPRECATED: BizTalk 2006 and 2006 R2 should work, but have not been tested with this release.

Thomas, as always, thanks for all your work. This keeps deployment even more contained than before. A+
