Release Notes

This release consists of one assembly that defines a custom Sandcastle build component named, ResolveExternalLinksComponent, which allows you to configure ID-to-URL mappings so that you can specify hyperlinks in your code comments and MAML topics using IDs instead of actual URLs.

To get started see ResolveExternalLinksComponent for instructions, an overview, configuration schemas and examples.

For background information, see this discussion.

Note: The source code is available for download in the Source Code area of this website.

This release contains several bug fixes and new features:
  1. DocProject 1.11.0 RC has this component built-in, so a separate download is not required. The component is automatically added to the Help 1.x and Help 2.x build component stacks (both conceptual and reference) of newly created DocProjects and DocSites.
  2. Conceptual builds are supported, with some additional configuration required. (See ResolveExternalLinksComponent, Examples.)
  3. The editor now uses a tabbed view.
    1. The General tab provides additional fields for new component-level attributes.
    2. The Namespaces tab provides a grid for managing XML namespaces that are required by XPath expressions on the General tab.
    3. The Mappings tab provides the ability to manage URL mapping providers and also hosts providers' editors.
