Support for Dependent Assembly plug-ins
Microsoft is introducing Dependent Assemblies (currently in preview), which will take over functions of ILMerge (which is deprecated) and can be used in Plugins to load dependent assemblies. More on the topic: https://docs.microsoft.com/pl-pl/power-apps/developer/data-platform/dependent-assembly-plugins
If you would like to test out the preview of v8, you can use one of the links here:
- https://xrmtoolkit.com/downloads/xrmtoolkit_8_0_1_0.vsix (VS2017/19)
- https://xrmtoolkit.com/downloads/xrmtoolkit.x64_8_0_1_0.vsix (VS2022)
Please note that there is not any documentation yet for any new features. You can only request a trial license at this point after installing the new version. However, the trial duration is for 120 days currently until v8 is released. Please submit any issues via the regular support options and not directly to this suggestion.
@Customer Support - do you have a roadmap for the v8 release or an ETA?
