The release is available from

The main goal of this release was to rework the help file builder project file format and build engine to ready them for use in a Visual Studio package that will provide full Visual Studio integration in a future release. This resulted in a number of major changes.

Be sure to read the Version History as projects from prior versions will require conversion to the new MSBuild project format and the standalone GUI has undergone a major revision as well. See the topics in the Getting Started section for more information.

This version is an Alpha release. There are a lot of new features and major changes and I have not thoroughly tested all of them in the various option combinations. It appears to be quite stable and the project for the help file builder's help file was developed and built with it. However, don't be surprised if you do find a bug or two. If you find any, please report them in the Discussions forum or Issue Tracker at the Sandcastle Help File Builder project on CodePlex. Please be sure to specify the version number you are using to keep the issues separate from the current production release. Thank you!
