Power Toys have been something we expect to see from time-to-time, they often fill in the gaps of functionality the Microsoft development teams didn't get to finish in the release timeframe.
Earlier this week saw the release of a number of power toys for VS2005 and 2008 aimed at the school programmer. The power toy download includes the following tools;
- Visual creator for sort algorithms
- Visually create search algorithms
- A visual variable declaration
- Class Designer
- Function Flow chat
Obviously these tools will be aimed at the lowest common denominator for me the ability to produce a function flow chart showing which functions are called from one process could be very useful.
