Suggestions for Visual Studio Extension
1) Beef up the Visual Studio extension to support packaging of Windows services - ideally it would build the Powershell script for you automatically and publish the package to the deployment manager. This would eliminate some manual steps moving between the publish tool and the extension.
2) Add support to the Visual Studio extension to use publish settings (i.e. pre-compile, assembly merge, etc.). Again, have to publish using visual studio built-in tools and then run the command line publish tool.
Other than that, great job so far! Thanks!
