Hey, something from “FXE” remines me about “FXB“, and didn’t I release FetchXML Builder about some time 2014, and probably roughly just 7 years ago?
Of course I started to check the History for FetchXML Builder. There are no dates… Hm.
Before the NuGet release was introduce by Tanguy Touzard (and me 😏 (well I only chat a bit with Mr. T)) – the tools we only ask people to “install” by just download the dll and put it in the XrmToolBox folder. So I was using GitHub for my tools.
It started to be release on CodePlex, but it has died so I can’t look for it now. Try to open the site codeplex.com just moves you to microsoft.com. So it died hard on 2021-07-01, retired 2017, and birth 2006. Bye bye.
Into the lost history
So I try in the old branch on GitHub. There were some files for the early website?
Ah, there is the index.html! And sure, it start with:
Ok, we’re on to something!
One red thing says the downloads, and the one right is the dates!
We see that it is comment, but it is right! So this is the only history of my child…
Edit: the FetchXML Builder History page has now been updated with the birth date!
