Sandcastle CodePlex download dissolves

Document generation is nobody’s favorite task. Microsoft has had a pre-beta automatic document generator brewing for a number of years that would help take classes, code and the like, and create documentation, saving some onerous tasking.

This long-running project took on an open-source tenor with a Codeplex download. It is suddenly dark.

Apparently, the source code was not available, making it less than open source. Microsoft apologized, and pulled the rev from Codeplex. A free download, without open-source panache, can be found on Microsoft’s download site.
