First, a brief apology.
For the past two years we here at CodeSmith Tools have been working hard, but we made the mistake of doing so behind closed doors. Communication was at the core of this company when we opened our doors back in 2004, and it is something that we wrongly allowed ourselves to get away from. Well we are going to fix that: From here on out we vow to reopen the lines of communication with more blogging, more news posts, and publicly releasing company roadmaps.
Enough about the past, let's talk about the future.
CodeSmith Generator 6.0 is already under development, and is currently scheduled for a release in summer of 2011.
We are working towards a two version complete migration to WPF and complete Visual Studio Integration. Many of the features and tasks in 6.0 are steps necessary to complete features in 7.0 for Visual Studio Integration.
Another primary goal of 6.0 is ease of use. We want to make it easier for both new and veteran users to create, configure, and run code templates and projects.
PLINQO for Entity Framework templates are under development for CodeSmith Generator, and are currently scheduled for release in spring of 2011. (These templates should be available for beta well before that.)
These templates will be part of the PLINQO family because they will share a lot of the functionality and core features. Also, this will allow the PLINQO framework to grow along side Entity Framework, inheriting key features such as multiple database providers.
We are thinking ahead for all of our products.
