Today's meeting started in an empty room until I realized that I was in the wrong room and not just early. I'd barely gotten to the right room when we were off to the races for a quick 10-minute triage-heavy meeting.
Port to Mono is an old feature request recently revived by @sgtatham, who's worked with WiX on Mono and is interested in making a cleaner integration. There's a conversation on the topic happening on the wix-devs mailing list.
Unable to build WiX 3.6 project with references in Visual Studio 2017, from @jhumphries83, reports a problem with project references. Unfortunately, it appears to be a localized problem and nobody in the meeting had a suggestion about the cause of the problem.
Uninstall does not remove location tag from applicationHost of nested WebVirtualDir, from @kunitdmi, reports a problem with
WixIIsExtension. We took the bug in WiX v4.x for somebody to investigate and fix.
WiX hangs on save project VS2015, from @mijo9a, is a familiar-sounding problem that I couldn't find in the issue tracker. But the workaround (Visual Studio's auto-save setting) should work until someone dares to dig into the Votive source code to figure out where the bug lies.
Consider changing all .NET download URLs to HTTPS in NetFx Extension, from @VonOgre, requests that the package groups in
WixNetFxExtensionuse HTTPS URLs instead of HTTP. In an HTTPS-everywhere world, that makes sense, though given that the payloads are signed and verified, it doesn't do anything to increase security. Anyway, we took the issue into WiX v4.x.
Feature request: Support modify/change action in WixStdBA for msi packages with DisplayInternalUI="yes"., from @aleksandr-grechko, requests that
DisplayInternalUIbe honored when invoking a bundle for "modify" mode. Burn does not invoke MSI internal UI during any maintenance mode action because the user could override the planned action.
util:ServiceConfig not usable for conditionally installed Service , from @danners, requests support for having multiple
ServiceConfigelements for the same service. We took the feature request into WiX v4.x.
Add search to v3 WiX manual, from @elinaru, requests search for the WiX web site manual. As we have the WiX.chm help file and search engines like Google and Bing can restrict search to a site, we declined the request.
