Visual Studio 2010 Web Deployment Projects RTW - Available Now RRS feed

    We are pleased to announce that the RTW version of Web Deployment Projects for Visual Studio 2010 and can be obtained from the download page.

    If you’ve been using Web Deployment Projects in Visual Studio 2008 or 2005, you can upgrade to VS 2010 without hesitation with the availability of Visual Studio 2010 Web Deployment Projects RTW (for Visual Studio Professional and higher skus). If you are using the Beta version of Visual Studio 2010 Web Deployment Projects, we recommend you to upgrade to the RTW version.

    The power tool named “Web Deployment Projects” originally shipped as an out-of-band update for both Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. This power tool provided a simplistic way to replace config sections and to integrate the ASP.NET pre-compiler and merge utilities into Visual Studio’s build process. Although Visual Studio 2010 includes a powerful new packaging and deployment technology based on MSDeploy, it is not backward compatible with the previous releases of Web Deployment Projects. To address this incompatibility we’ve ported the original Web Deployment Projects to VS 2010 and ASP.NET 4.0. With this refresh you’ll now be able to migrate your VS 2008 Web Deployment Projects to VS 2010.

    More details about WDP 2010 RTW is available in this blog post. Do let us know your feedback.

    The new version does not have the ExcludeFromBuild... i saw though a <Folder /> under <ItemGroup>.


    Are there any examples, documentation how to use it? What is it for?


    I can't find a single example how to exclude folders for VS2010 WDP


    Is there a way to keep intact a folder located at the destination build folder?
