WiX toolset bug count after April 16th, 2009.

Whew. After a relatively easy bug night last week, getting under 10 bugs in the WiX toolset felt like a real effort tonight. The big changes we made in the last few weeks (like heat and language fallback support in MSBuild) are still regressing and a couple extension bugs caught us by surprise.

Fortunately, Mike did a killer job on the hard extension bug and Brian (heat) and Eric (MSBuild language fallback) did a fantastic job working through the regressions in their areas. Justin also finally ramped back into VS2005 and killed an old bug there. All in all, a good fight to drive our bug count below 10 for the first time ever. It's going to be a fight like this for a while as we slowly work towards a 48-hour zero bug goal. Lots of old Votive to get through first.

On a truly happy note, I now have verification of my new release plan for WiX v3.0. Expect to see that posted sometime over the weekend. I think you're going to like it.
