One of those things you miss is the possibility to get warning for missing and faulty XML comments used for documentation with for example NDoc. I wrote about this before and won't go into anymore details - but you can't get these warnings and it sucks.
So - i have now hacked together an add-in for Visual Studio that finds missing and empty XML comments in VB.NET. The tool reports everything missing on all public and protected code-objects as tasks in the task list (see picture).
For our, quite big solution (11 projects, 55 000 lines of code) it takes about 5 seconds so it could very well be included in the normal build from the studio.
Anyone interested in this add-in you can have it by writing to me on marcus (dot) hammarberg (at) avega (dot) se.
