Best Practices Analyzer v1.1 Shipped

last month, we shipped the Best Practices Analysers ..

here are some more details about it if you didn't know it before !!

The BizTalk Server Best Practices Analyzer performs configuration-level verification by reading and reporting only. The Best Practices Analyzer gathers data from different information sources, such as Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) classes, SQL Server databases, and registry entries. The Best Practices Analyzer uses the data to evaluate the deployment configuration. The Best Practices Analyzer does not modify any system settings, and is not a self-tuning tool.

What’s new:
V1.0 has 77 rules, v1.1 has 220 with 143 new rules added!

Here are some relevant rules
1. Added a warning rule for stopped orchestrations
