Automated documentation for .NET Framework 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005

P: n/a
TORQUAY, DEVON, UK - Innovasys announced the release of Document! X
5, the fifth version of the documentation solution of choice for
developers using Microsoft Visual Studio or the .NET Framework.
Document! X 5 automatically produces professional quality technical
documentation and on-line help for Microsoft .NET Framework assemblies
(.NET Framework 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 are all supported), COM components and
controls, Visual Basic source code, Access, SQL Server and Oracle
databases and XSD Schemas.

New features included in Document! X 5 include full support for
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, documentation of .NET Framework 2.0
features including generics and nullable types together with new
templates to replicate the fresh look and feel of the Microsoft Visual
Studio 2005 MSDN documentation. The existing Visual Comment Editors
integrated into Visual Studio have been enhanced to make it easier to
work with complex content such as examples and See Also links directly
within a preview of the generated documentation.

Developing accurate documentation, particularly for complex components,
databases or XSD schemas, has traditionally been a time consuming,
costly and skills intensive task. Documentation during development can
be seen as a moving target and at the end of a project developers are
often immediately re-assigned to new development tasks, leaving most
projects poorly documented. With Document! X, documentation can be
automatically produced throughout design and development without
requiring investment of developer resource, providing development teams
with an accurate and up to date reference and allowing new developers
to jump the learning curve of new components and schemas.

Richard Sloggett, technical director at Innovasys, said, "Document! X
5 makes producing documentation a natural and productive activity for
developers and technical writers alike. We are particularly excited
about the comprehensive .NET Framework 2.0 support and Visual Studio
2005 integration in version 5 which will dramatically simplify the
accuracy and productivity of .NET documentation, and in particular
documentation of code using or defining .NET Framework 2.0 generic
types."

"Document! X has saved us a huge amount of time, effort and cost by
automating the production of reference documentation for our Microsoft
..NET components. We are very impressed with the Document! X product and
would not hesitate to recommend it to any .NET component developer or
development team." said Dean Guida, President of Infragistics, a
leading .NET component vendor.

Document! X is the documentation tool chosen by leading commercial
component vendors including Infragistics, Data Dynamics, Janus Systems,
Dundas, Farpoint, Telerik and Xceed.

Further information, a free trial version, or an upgrade for existing
Document! X users can be obtained from the Innovasys website
