It would be good if the installer for the next Sandcastle CTP was signed. The previous ones were not signed, which is a bit unusual for Microsoft.
Also, it would be nice if some of the Sandcastle operations could be multi-threaded, so that the documentation generation would be even faster on a multi-core or multi-processor computer.

Thanks WN and we will code sign for our RTW release.
Sandcastle operations are limited by IO as we constantly write to disk. I would like to understand your reason behind multi-threaded. Thanks.

I also strongly wish a multithread Sandcastle release, as I use a Quadcore Hyperthreading machine with SSDs. I/O has plenty of reserves, but Sandcastle still needs about 50 minutes for one of our projects.
BTW, compared with good old NDoc, Sandcastle has *lousy* performance. NDoc was at least 5 times faster than Sandcastle. If you could bring back NDocs performance to Sandcastle *and then* use multiple cores, it would be *really* great.
