WiX toolset bug count after March 6th, 2009.

This was the week I was waiting for. Tonight we finally dropped the WiX toolset well under 30 bugs. Almost all of the bugs that have been "just about fixed" came in tonight and we killed double digit bugs.

First of all, several heat issues went away because Brian implemented a new id generation system that hopefully will make far more stable. You can read about the changes on his blog. Second, Jason is back from his honeymoon and put a serious dent in the DTF bugs. I expect that we'll see most of these single digit areas all bounce zero bugs regularly now.

That leaves Votive. The Visual Studio team, who is now primarily responsible for Votive work, has been busy with internal integration work. Hopefully, we'll see them pop in the next few weeks so that number starts dropping.

In any case, we're at 25 bugs tonight and that feels good. I can't wait to see what next week brings.
