Web Deployment Projects for VS2008

Yesterday, Microsoft released a CTP for Web Deployment Projects for Visual Studio 2008. I donโ€™t use these in my own projects, having built a robust system that revolves around CruiseControl.NET and PyroBatchFTP, but it sounds like they have fixed some of the pain points with the new release, which has these new features:

  • Full migration support from WDP for VS 2005
  • WDP output is replaced only if the WDP build succeeds
  • IIS7 Support

There is a fairly extensive walkthrough with the announcement here.
