Managed Package Framework Classes

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

The managed package framework (MPF) classes can be used to create VSPackages using managed code. They provide default implementations for many VSPackage interfaces. By hiding implementation details and complexities, MPF enables you to create Visual Studio integration products with a minimum amount of code.
