CFBuild: Next version and warning

This post is to let people know that a new version of Compact Framework Build Helper is on the way. Probably release it on the weekend.

The release will fix 1 bug. This bug could cause your project file to be deleted if your compile ended in error. If you have been effected by this error you would have seen in the message output the message: Deleting .dpr

All delete actions are logged in the message output.

Also do not use unit names with an underscore in them. Unfortunately the MakeCFCompatible library cannot support unit names with underscores.

ie. Main_Unit.pas

I might also release a fix for the documentation since it appears I forgot to give a description of one of the options.

JED, QC: Sysop bulk promotion feature

This is a feature aimed at Sysops (level 2 and above) of the Borland QualityCentral system.

A feature of JED, QC allows you to tag (mark) reports that are currently being viewed in JED, QC and promote them all at once.

Instead of having a delay each time you promote a report you can simply tag a report for promotion and then promote all the reports you have tagged at one time.

Here is a screen shot. (click to enlarge)

JED, QC: You need to download this version!

Overnight the message of the day changed on the QualityCentral server. Unfortunately when I implement support for this I made some bad assumptions.

If you would like to continue using JED, QC for accessing QualityCentral, you will need to download this version.

Please note that the version you will be downloading is vastly superior to the current publicly available download. It is almost the complete version 1 build. Just fixing a couple more bugs before final release.

I've enabled MadExcept in this version so if you get any errors, send them to me so I can rectify them.
