Document Well 2010 Plus (More Info)One of the key pieces of feedback that we have received over several versions of Visual Studio is that users want to be able to customize the behaviour of their document tabs. From the ordering of tabs to the position of the close buttons, user can now configure dozens of different options for their tabs.

One of the new features for DSL in VS2010 is DSL libraries, in this post I will explain how to use the new feature. Prerequisites: VS SDK 2010 Beta2 and higher + DSL SDK 2010 Beta2 and higher.

As of yesterday, you can download the new version of the DSL SDK.
We fixed some bugs and we added some really cool features such as better templates for WPF and Winforms based designers, T4 code generation at build time, domain model extensibility (you can even extend the Dsl designer itself), and DslLibraries and much more. For the full list see Jean-Marc's post.
There's a known issue with debugging Dsl designers using F5 - the toolbox items won't appear in the exp hive. In order to work around this (until the RC) you will have to run using CTRL+F5 (without...

Jean-Marc has released another sample over the weekend:
Domain Model Extensibility, here is a quote from his post:
"The sample presents a DSL to explain the architecture of a multi-Tiered application. Each tier is made of components, which have ports. Connections are made between output ports and input ports. What is new is that a Domain Model Extension will add a “Security Extension” thus providing to the toolbox new items (an Audit Log), to a Tier new decorators, to Ports three new Domain properties related to the HTTP security, new validation methods, and new rules. I’m pretty sure you’ll like this...

The first DSL SDK 2010 Beta1 was just added by Jean-Marc and it demonstrates the usage of our new feature - ModelBus, used for model referencing.
The code and the documentation is available here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/DslTools
