Latest commit ba372ef Dec 3, 2016 @mrward mrward Fix properties added by NuGet package PowerShell script being encoded
The SlowCheetah NuGet package uses the MSBuild API to directly modify
the MSBuild project file stored in memory in MSBuild's
GlobalProjectCollection. It adds properties that contain special
MSBuild characters, for example $( ). When SharpDevelop was merging
these new properties back into the project file on disk it was using
MSBuild to encode them so the wrong values were added. Now the
property values are not encoded.

#develop is a free Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for C#, VB.NET, Boo, IronPython, IronRuby and F# projects on Microsoft's .NET platform. It is written (almost) entirely in C#, and comes with features you would expect in an IDE plus a few more.

The #develop project started on September 11th, 2000. The project was initiated by Mike Krüger. In the course of the project, several contributors joined in. If you want to contribute see "Joining the team".
