Castle Visual Studio Integration 0.3 released

Jonathon Rossi over in
Brisbane has been hard at work on the CVSI project (Castle
Visual Studio Integration) and has released
version 0.3
which now supports VS 2008 - for those not in the
know CVSI provides nvelocity intellisense when writing views for

I did some testing of some earlier releases last week and it's
looking good, hilights include:

  • New installer which supports 2005 and 2008.
  • Basic XHTML intelisense.

It also includes some fixes which means the intelisense now
works when the templates are not in a web application project
(useful for those of us writing applications where we have
pluggable modules) and fixes for multi-level inheritence, so
helpers and view components with multiple levels of base class i.e.
FormHelper (which now inherits from AbstractFormRelatedHelper) will
be included in the list of classes, something which bugged me with
earlier releases on 2005.

Great work Jono!
