Enhanced Content Query Web Part goes Beta 2!


I am proud to announce that the Enhanced Content Query Web Part is now beta 2. The new release includes a WSP deployment file that simplifies deployment - just download the file, and use STSADM to install it - no more messing around with web.config, .dwp or .webpart files, or xslt style sheets!

I even wrote a small batch file to help you install it if you are uncomfortable with the stsadm command line.



You can find the above in the project's web site: http://www.codeplex.com/ECQWP



The new version also comes with default xslt files that get installed in the style library and render the web part like a list (table format):




Now, to get to release candidate, I still need:


  • Testers (must have own server)

  • Technical Writers (must have own server)


Testers need not contact me - they should just go to the project web site and start entering bugs in the Issue Tracker.


Writers should contact me and I will ask them to write up the installation instructions and usage documentation.
