Class Designer news

Due to numerous fundamental omissions, the Class Designer has a long way to go before it can fully compete with existing modelling tools (although it already beats them hands down in some areas). The only devs who don’t see that are quite frankly those that haven’t used on a regular basis UML tools before (either due to not having the chance to do so _or_ because they tried and quickly quit due to the high UML learning curve).

Today, two posts in the class designer forums renewed my faith in the tool big time.
1) Full signature support in RTM (look for contribution by Ramesh on 18 May)
2) A cool open project that seamlessly adds a whole bunch of features (including showing all fields as associations for selected types). Shame about the gotdotnet choice Dmitriy, but you can’t have it all I guess :-)

Good stuff, thanks guys!
