.NET Documentation Tool 7.8 Changes

The .NET Documentation Tool creates comprehensive technical documentation for .NET and ASP.NET projects written in either C# or VB.NET. Forthcoming changes in version 7.8 of the .NET Documentation Tool:
  • The XML Comment parsing routine has been rewritten, allowing more tags to be supported in this and subsequent versions of the .NET Documentation Tool. See Recommended XML Tags for Documentation Comments for details of the tags that can be used to document .NET source code with the XML commenting system.
  • The XML Comment exception, paramref, see and seealso tags are now fully supported in both C# and VB.NET source code.
  • The XML Comment list tag is now supported. This tag allows bulleted or numbered lists as well as tables to be incorporated into the XML Comment documentation produced by the .NET Documentation Tool.
  • Subroutine argument XML Comments are now extracted from source code.
  • The HTML output for a project's functions and subroutines has been improved.
