WiX v3.8 released.

It is my pleasure to announce that WiX toolset v3.8 is now officially declared Production/Stable. The final build number is v3.8.28.0. You can download it from here.

This release was completely managed by Bob Arnson. Most of this year I've been focused on launching FireGiant.

I asked Bob to help out and he stepped up in a big way. If you haven't said something nice to Bob in the last 24 hours, I encourage you to do so now. Without him I'm not sure we'd have VS2013 support.

Speaking of VS2013 support, here are the highlights for WiX v3.8:

  • Visual Studio 2013 support.
  • Enhanced WiX Standard Bootstrapper Application with new BA function support.

Of course, there are also a bunch of bug fixes and cleanup that makes this the best release of the WiX toolset ever.

We start WiX v3.9 in earnest next month.

In the mean time, Happy Thanksgiving Day, for those of you that do that. Keep coding, you know I am.

FireGiant provides dedicated support for the WiX toolset. Ever wish you could get your WiX questions answered immediately with the technical detail that you find in the blog posts here? You can with FireGiant!
