The users have spoken. In my last post I wrote that impending changes would forever break the CodeKeep add-in for VS.NET 2003. Well, since that post was written, I've received several complaints from users who were not happy about the decision to kill that flavor of the add-in.
I also performed some additional analysis that supported those users. As of this morning, here's how the code snippets break down with regards to how they were submitted into the CodeKeep repository:
Total snippets: 8,099
Snippets submitted through web site: 3,349
Snippets submitted through VS 2005 add-in: 2,009
Snippets submitted through VS.NET 2003 add-in: 2,741
A full one-third of all snippets have been submitted from the VS.NET 2003 add-in. That's a huge number to just let it die, and it definitely proves there are still tons of developers out there using VS.NET 2003 (heck, not everyone can move to the latest and greatest).
So my mind has been changed for me. The CodeKeep add-in for VS.NET 2003 will continue to live. Of course, this means all those changes I keep talking about won't take effect until I finish updating the VS.NET 2003 add-in, but apparently this will make a lot of people happy.
I'll let you know when everything has been updated and is ready to download.
