wspbuilder.exe is included in this package.

WSPBuilder.exe version x86 (Console app) - Only exe file and libraries.
Cablib.dll for x64 system. Just replace this file and WSPBuilder will work on a x64 system, however WSPBuilder Extensions will install the correct version.

Local config files are now supported with wspbuilder. Just put the wspbuilder.exe.config file into your local project and modify it to your needs. WSPBuilder will first look for the general config file, then the local project and last the command line arguments.

WSPBuilder's wsp files have a problem. It adds some feature files to the manifest.xml in <Resources> or <TemplateFiles>. Say you create a feature used in two solutions. Then you update the feature's files, redeploy ONE solution and -upgradesolution. Then if you -upgradesolution the other without without redeploying, it breaks and can't be removed. Should use <ElementFiles> in feature.xml instead.

WSPBuilder is an incredible time saver and a must have for any SharePoint developer. With WSPBuilder Extensions, developers can increase the speed of code iteration since the extensions take care of the "busy work" that simply slows the process down. Thank you, Carsten!

The title of the download "WSPBuilder Extensions 1.05 - x64 bit and IIS7 support." is a bit misleading...might be easier to state the it supports x86 AND x64. Great job mate!
