CodeMaid v0.9.0 (Spade upgrade edition) released!

CodeMaid v0.9.0 is now available on Visual Studio Gallery and GitHub.  This release again tackles the most popular feature requests off the Trello backlog (you’re voting there, right?) – and in particular is focused around some sweet upgrades to Spade, our code digging tool window. 🙂

Breaking Changes

To support the new Spade search bar, we have discontinued support for Visual Studio 2010.  The last version of CodeMaid that supports VS2010 is v0.8.1 which will remain available on GitHub.
