Draco.NET is a Windows service application designed to facilitate continuous integration. Draco.NET monitors your source code repository, automatically rebuilds your project when changes are detected and then emails you the build result along with a list of changes since the last build.

Draco.NET version 1.5 supports builds using NAnt build tool or via Visual Studio .NET 2002/2003 solution files. Draco.NET can monitor Source Control repositories in CVS, Visual SourceSafe, PVCS, SubVersion, and others.

Draco.NET is completely free and includes source released under a BSD-style licence. Please read the licence included with the distribution for more information.

This tool was inspired by CruiseControl developed by ThoughtWorks



In the meantime simply visit the SourceForge.NET project page and download and run the msi installer. Draco will install a CHM help file that contains additional usage instructions.
