SPDisposeCheck tool has been official announced


I have discussed problems with missing dispose for SPWeb and SPSite objects earlier on my blog (e.g. here and here) and Roger has provided a guidance for specific coding patterns which can cause problems such problems.


In the last couple of month I have been involved in a project driven by Roger Lamb to create and test a tool which allows to identify such incorrect coding in a compiled dll. The outcome of this project is the SPDisposeCheck tool which has now been officially anounced and which should be available in a couple of month.

    Any idea when this tool will be out?  i recently ran across a client project where it could have REALLY come in handy.
