Release Notes

SAF is a way to automate and repeat configuration changes in SharePoint using "Actions". These actions can then be grouped together as Xml into a "Macro" and then run from a Feature, STSADM command. MSBuild or WCF Service (coming soon).

SAF v2 - has major improvements includng ...

Feature / Improvement
=====================
- Upgraded SAF to use Spring 1.3 RC1
- Added support for Conditions to an IAction (Macro and Action)
- Released an MSBuild Task so that SAF can easily be run from MSBuild Proj files
- Support added for Property Values to be set by Expressions not just literal "values"
- PlaceHolders can be set dynamically - allowing one Action or Entity to supply values to another later down the pipeline
- Attributes added for Input and Output - allowing Entity Properties to be declaritively set
- Automatic PlaceHolders can now be set from your *.config, Registry, Environment Variables or User Generated by yourself

Breaking Changes
================
- Changed the IAdapter.OnGetMacro() to include the old Macro Report.
- StsAdmin Action has now been given the ability to supply Commnads for "Do" and "Undo". Hence, the Spring XML will need to change. please see examples.
- Powersell Action has now been given the ability to supply Scripts for the "Do" and "Undo". Hence, the Spring XML will need to change. please see examples.

Is this compatible for SharePoint 2010? I ran the install.bat to install, but it just hangs. Oh, and I followed the install instructions to change the path where stsadm is.

Like the examples! Would like to see examples of how to create a Macro with more than one Action though. Great Job guys!

Great improvements on already very useful code. I'm using this all over the place in my organisation. In my opinion - If you have sharepoint you need SAF.
