MaventionMinifiedJsFileGenerator was not found on this system – bugfix available

A while ago I’ve published the Mavention SharePoint Assets Minifier extension that allows you to automatically minify CSS and JavaScript files. Unfortunately it had a bug that in some situations resulted in the “MaventionMinifiedJsFileGenerator was not found on this system” error. I have just published a new version of the tool (v1.0.1) with this bug fixed.

Shared components on the SharePoint platform

By default SharePoint 2010 allows you to have only one version of a particular WSP deployed in the Farm. While it’s not an issue in many scenarios, as soon as you start working with multiple sites using functionality from those WSPs things will get more challenging. So how should you deal with shared components?
