In CTP 5, I believe, when building the project, the CREATE ASSEMBLY FROM 'x.dll' autmatically built the required binary code to build the project WITHOUT having to do the manual create/script and then put in the project.

Why was this dropped from--not only 6 and 7--the RTM This seems like a step backward not forward. Any changes to the dll require performing an ALTER ASSEMBLY, script, and paste all over again.

Hi Kevin,

The main reason this was removed is due to the fact that the pathing for the assembly can not be relative pathing based on a user enlistment to source control which makes the use of the file path in the CREATE ASSEMBLY statement problematic in a team working environment.

We are aware of this issue and plan to address it in a future release.
