Release Notes

XMLMenuFeatureReceiver is very simple Feature receiver component that adds menu items/tasks to SharePoint Site Actions menu.
The menu is defined in an xml document, which the component reads and builds it on the fly.

Additional Comments:
Background: My idea was to add few Custom Feature Receivers menu items to make my life easy with SharePoint.
I wanted to add links to routine tasks like Share point central admin, Features management etc.
On Goggling I found few very good examples which I could have used but the menus were brutally hardcoded.
If I had to add new one, I had to recompile/redeploy the solution. This raised a question - how about reading the menu items from a XML file? Will share point refresh when I make changes to the Xml? -- Yes it does
