This is a true Gem!!! You have done a fantastic job on this and I stumbled upon it only after writing my own VSIX project to generate classes with SPMetal. You've done a bang-up job on the class designer. I was really hoping to see support for external content types, which is actually how I came across this great developer productivity tool! Is there any plan to incorporate this with the default build of VS?

Thanks for this great tool!

This tools would benefits from going opensource, on hosted that encourage collaborative and community development (I think github, but codeplex wit git also).

From a production perspective, it's hard to work with a project maintained by only one guy. Microsoft does not support it. The source code is not available. So what's happen if tomorrow a major issue appears with this software and Olivier Carpentier is not able to fix (or does not have time, or have better things to do with o15, or ... or ...).

I'm not religiously saying that open source is the way to think today. But I think software should either be commercial and supported or open source.

Hope my call will be hear.

Hi SteveB_, I'm agree with you and I tried to move this project on codeplex with an open source license some month ago. But for very specific legal requirements, I can not do that. I'm really sorry for that. So the project is now available "as is" with a lot of whitespaces and bugs. My release roadmap is very slow and to be honnest, is as "a best effort". If you're using this tool and that it's working fine it's good for you. But if you're planning to use it on a new project on a production project, think about these limitations.
