SML.NET in Visual Studio .NET

The binary distribution now comes with an experimental package for Visual Studio .NET.
Its main features are:

  • Support for Visual Studio .NET 2002 & 2003.
  • A simple project system, supported by wizards.
  • Syntactic support: lexical colouring, bracket matching and syntax checking.
  • Intellisense against SML and .NET libraries: .NET APIs are shown with their ML types.
  • Continuous type inference: catch type errors without recompiling.
  • Basic support for the Visual Studio source code debugger.

The user guide contains instructions on installation and use of the VS package.
