The release is available from

This release supports the Sandcastle May 2008 Release (v2.4.10520). 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 notes for version,,, and Projects created with version and earlier 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.

The standalone build components download for this release also includes a copy of the F# syntax declaration generator that will work with the May 2008 Sandcastle release.  It can be used in conjunction with the Sandcastle Styles Rev 3 patch.
