VSIP 2005: Managed VSPackages

VSIP 2005 has been available a while, but I hadn’t found the time to look into it. Now I did and I must say I’m impressed, especially by the new managed classes in the Environment SDK. For example, it’s now possible to create a custom editor for Visual Studio completely in C#, and creating a tool window in managed code is really a matter of a few lines. Great work, I’ll have to have a much closer look at this managed stuff!

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.

Please use the links in the page footer to get in touch with me. I'm available for conversations on Keybase, Matrix, Mastodon or Twitter, as well as via email.
