DocMounter 3.0 + Help Viewer 2.1: excellent tandem
Today we are proud to present two new releases of our tools related to help systems.
DocMounter, our tool to build documentation for .NET assemblies, was updated to the version 3.0. This major version update brings new features and great enhancements. The most notable of them is the ability to generate help files directly in the MSHC format. Among other enhancements are support for high-resolution screens and ability to create help files without .NET assemblies.
Updated 10Tec Help Viewer also brings several important improvements. First, it provides the ability to use any folder on the hard drive as the help library folder. Second, it remembers the last viewed topic in every help file and restores it automatically when you open a help file again. Third, it was supplemented with new heuristics allowing you to browse help files built with Sandcastle.
The updated Help Viewer perfectly complements the new major version of DocMounter and is used as the viewer of MSHC help files built with our .NET documentation tool.
