I’ve been a long time supporter of Visual Studio Web Deployment projects. They held so much unadulterated power from the simplicity of just being an MSBUILD file inside your solution. With the launch of Visual Studio 2012 Microsoft has made the call to no longer support WDP moving forward. Visual Studio 2012’s Publishing profiles are even more powerful, and they bring all your old friends along for the ride.
