When will the Developer Toolkit be available for CRM 2015/Visual Studio 2013?
Thanks for your feedback, you can download the CRM 2015 SDK now from here : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44567
There is an open source toolkit that beats the pants off of the one that used to be in the SDK, IMO. It's called "Dynamics CRM Developer Extensions". https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/0f9ab063-acec-4c55-bd6c-5eb7c6cffec4 I (have no affiliation with it and) highly recommend it.
+1 for @Jeff Klosinski recommending Jason Lattimer's Developer Extensions. We shifted to using that some time ago now and haven't looked back. TypeScript support, single Web Resource Publish etc. With a bit of Powershell we're pulling the solution down to the dev machine and SolutionPackager extracting on a Project clean too so no functionality lost and much gained. The new one from MS will have to have some killer features to make us go back.
Another +1 for Jason Lattimer's extensions. I especially love the plugin and workflow integration testing templates, they have cut down my development time for plugins and custom workflow assemblies considerably.
+1 Definitely I need
Good news! The new version of the Developer Toolkit is now available - https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/65199277-820a-4315-8783-82da19bd04d8
Still has major bugs - in particular wiping the contents of crmregister file make it useless for existing solutions
