VG.net 7.4 Released

We released VG.net versions 7.4, 6.4, and 5.4. Changes include:

  • Support for Visual Studio 2012, the SHOUTING MENU edition.
  • Redesigned Picture Designer dialog windows: we reduced their size and made them more usable with all environment font sizes.
  • A redesign of the CustomElement class API. This includes breaking changes necessary to fix the underlying design problems. CustomElement based sample code has changed accordingly.
  • Bug fixes.
For a description of all changes, please see the version 7.4 Readme document.

Why 3 different versions of VG.net? There is one version of VG.net for each version of Visual Studio:

  • VG.net version 7.4 is for Visual Studio 2012
  • VG.net version 6.4 is for Visual Studio 2010
  • VG.net version 5.4 is for Visual Studio 2008
We keep these VG.net version source-code compatible, so you can move between different versions of Visual Studio. When you purchase a VG.net license, you obtain licenses for all versions of VG.net, so you can use all versions of Visual Studio.
Update:VG.net 7.4b is released; read below.

When you update your projects to use Visual Studio 2012, please check the .net framework target, and the Prodige.Drawing assembly version number. In Visual Studio 2012 you will need to use Prodige.Drawing.dll version 7.x, in order to have designer support.

Update: In VG.net 7.4a Prodige.Drawing.dll targeted .net 4.5. In VG.net 7.4b, Prodige.Drawing.dll targets .net 4.0. If you cannot see VG.net 7.4 in the "add new references" dialog, you will need to change your .net framework target to .net 4.5, or upgrade VG.net to version 7.4b (a free upgrade for users of 7.4a). The .net framework 4.0 and 4.5 use a different location for GAC installed assemblies. If you don't use a later framework target, you won't see these assemblies when you try to add a reference.

VG.net 7.4b is released. This is a free upgrade for VG.net 7.4 users. The main change: Prodige.Drawing.dll now targets .net 4.0, allowing you to deploy on windows XP machines, which do not support .net 4.5. There are some minor documentation improvements as well.
