Changes in the Web Deployment Project

Yesterday I mentioned that the final release of the Web Deployment Project for Visual Studio 2008 was out.

I installed it and ran into one small little issue you’ll want to know about if you have projects that were using the CTP release.

Back in December, I wrote that the CTP, in its attempt to not overwrite existing files if the build fails, required your post build steps to also work off of the tembbuilddir directory.

This is no longer true.  We can now use the post build steps against the release or debug directories the files end up in.

I’m not sure this is a good idea, but I imagine much brighter people than I battled out the decision to do this.
