Reviews for this release

I wasn't looking forward to converting existing help to xml help until I discovered this gem. Saved me a lot of time.

I love it, and I use it daily for documenting all of my PowerShell modules.

This thing is flipping sweet! great job. The only thing I want to say, which is nothing to do with application per say, is if your module is a script module, IE written in PowerShell, and not C#, and is a psm1/psd1, then when you name your help file, it has to be <ModuleName>-Help.xml. The Microsoft KB for creating these maml files say the it needs to be <ModuleName>.dll-Help.xml. If you have the '.dll' portion, your module will not associate the help file. hope this saves some people some time!
