CodeSmith 4.0 Beta 2 has been released and is now available to the public.  Here are just a few the new capabilities in CodeSmith 4.0:

  • CodeSmith Projects (.csp) - This feature makes automating your code generation process really easy and consistent whether you are working from inside of Visual Studio 2005, MSBuild, Windows Explorer, a command line / batch file, or CodeSmith itself.
  • ActiveSnippets - Imagine Visual Studio 2005 snippets, but with the full power of CodeSmith available to execute any logic or access any complex metadata (including database schema and xml data) to control the output of your snippets.
  • CodeSmith Maps (.csmap) - This feature will allow you to create dictionary style maps of things like SQL to C# data type mappings.
  • .netTiers 2.0 - The .netTiers templates have been greatly enhanced and included with CodeSmith 4.0.
  • Extended Property Management - You can now edit and add new schema extended properties inside of CodeSmith Studio.
  • Property Persistence - CodeSmith now remembers the property values from the last time you executed a template.

** IMPORTANT: If you have a previous CodeSmith 4.0 beta installed, please uninstall that first before installing beta 2.

CodeSmith 4.0 is designed to be installed side-by-side with CodeSmith 3.x so that you can use CodeSmith 3.x and CodeSmith 4.x at the same time.

  • If you attempted to download CodeSmith Professional beta 2 from this blog post before this comment was posted, the link was accidentally pointing to the beta 1 installer.  It has been corrected now.  Sorry for the confusion.

  • If we buy 3.2 in the next few weeks will we get a free upgrade to 4.0?

  • We haven't decided on the free upgrade start date yet, but I can tell you that anyone who purchases between now and final release will be upgraded for free.

  • What about people who have purchased an upgrade from 2.0 to 3.0 versions?  Will those be offered an upgrade price?

  • Anyone who purchased premier support with their license or previous upgrade will be able to upgrade to 4.x for free.  If you didn't purchase premier support, then upgrading from 3.x professional to 4.x professional will be $99 and upgrading from 3.x standard to 4.x standard will be $25.

  • The next version of this great tool from Eric has appeared. Go get it.

  • Sigh. Bought version 3.2 a month ago and that was difficult enough to get my boss to shell out £400+ when MyGeneration is free - had to convince him of the benefits of Codesmith and now go begging for more cash :-(

    Should have waited I guess ;-)
