Common AssemblyInfo suggestion

Mar 22, 2015 at 4:36 PM
Hi Clemens,
I use a modified WPF-only version of your great MapControl, so that it fits the architecture of my project. Therefore I need to track code changes manually and update my code accordingly. While doing that, I noticed, that you frequently update version numbers in all AssemblyInfo.cs files. If you do not already use a tool for that, then may I suggest creating a CommonAssemblyInfo.cs file at solution level which contains the common values of all projects. Then link to that common file from within every project and remove the common entries from the regular AssemblyInfo.cs files. This way in the future you only need to change the version (and perhaps other properties) in one place and make maintenance a little easier.
Just a suggestion (which might also fit other projects and users)...

The assembly information parts in such a common file are no longer visible (and editable) in the Assembly Information dialog window in Visual Studio Project Properties. So, no.
