Project Reference Context Menu Extension

Sometimes it's the little extensions that add up to allot...

How often do you need to get NuGet info on an assembly in your Project References? Maybe look them up on Stack Overflow? Or simply want to see the version numbers for a set of References?

Matthew Burleigh needed this once too many times, so did what dev's do and wrote an Visual Studio extension to make it quick, easy and just a couple clicks away...

mburleigh/ProjectReferenceContextMenuExtension

Adds context menu items to project reference to quickly open NuGet, Stack Overflow, etc for one or more references.

See the changelog for changes and roadmap.
