After spending way too much time being frustrated with NDoc and some of it's 'upgraded' versions crashing on my brand new generic classes, I've finally found what I need to get rid of NDoc all together.
Apparently it was right under my nose all this time! Microsoft is working on a tool called Sandcastle. It's a bunch of tools and XSL's used to transform XML code comments into an HtmlHelp project.
Since there's no official UI yet I've tried to build a NAnt script that runs all the tools and transforms in the right order but that did not yield a quick result. Fortunately a good Sandcastle UI is already available from the community. It looks just like NDoc so it's pretty much a click and go exercise. Just what I needed!
The final recipe (so far):
I hope this saves at least one other developer from going through the same problems I have!
Update - Managed to get the NAnt build working after all. If anyone wants the script I'll post it here. - It appears NDoc is officially dead. There will be no 2.0 release unless someone picks up where Kevin Downs stopped...
