      • This update to the Guidance Automation Extensions - February 2008 Release addresses the following issues:

        Registering and Using Guidance Packages on the Visual Studio Experimental Hive

        Registering and/or using a guidance package in the Visual Studio Experimental hive fails when Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 is installed. This is now fixed.

        Regular Expression Evaluation Enhancements

        When an operation (or a message) was created, the duration of the creation task was directly proportional (and much greater than linear) to the length of the operation name. This update offers a performance improvement. See Additional Information section.
    • Supported Operating System

      Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 3


        • Visual Studio 2008 (Team System, Professional Edition or Standard Edition) or Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1

        Registering and Using Guidance Packages on the Visual Studio Experimental Hive

        Registering and using guidance packages in the Visual Studio Experimental hive now work properly with the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1.

        Regular Expression Evaluation Enhancements

        This update provides a rewritten regular expression service, the ExpressionEvaluationService2 class and corresponding EvaluateExpressionAction2 and ExpressionEvaluatorValueProvider2 classes which include new regular expressions that were optimized to be run by the .NET Framework regex engine, thus performing much faster than the original ones.

        The original classes are still included in the GAX codebase for backward compatibility with existing guidance packages.
