MSDN Magazine Lag Time

I have been reading MSDN Magazine (and it’s predecessors MSJ and Visual Developer) for a number of years now.

Until recently there has been upto a 5 year lag between an article being written and being able to use it in anger.

Today I finally found a use for an article written in June last year (only 8 months behind)!

A really useful feature  especially when combined with  Code Generation:

(I have given up on adding tags around XML) 

ItemGroup
    Compile Include="*.cs"
/ItemGroup

This allows code to be added to the project without having to explicitly edit the project file.
