You can follow the WiX toolset on Twitter.

wixtricksI created the @wixtoolset Twitter account late last year. The account sat mostly dormant until two weeks ago when I started experimenting with posting to Twitter (tweeting?)from the command-line. After a couple tests, I integrated the experiment into the WiX toolset build process so every build makes a status update to the account. You can see an example here.

Eric took out one MSBuild bug and is trying to devise a solution to the single remaining bug. Basically, we're right where we were last week in the bug count.

WiX toolset bug count after May 7th, 2009.

Tonight was another good night for the WiX toolset. We're down one more bug from last week leaving us with 6 bugs. Earlier this week, Mike and I tracked down a really nasty memory corruption bug in the IIS CustomAction that was actually manifesting as a crash in the SecureObjects CustomAction (brutal to track down). A number of MSBuild issues popped up this week and were dealt with promptly. Also, Brian was able to get us back down to zero heat bugs. Very nice.
