Im working on a newer version (2.0) of my sharepoint2010 wsp (which contains several features and webparts). I have dev+test servers which have a webapp each with v1.0 of wsp. In the newer version there are several updates to the existing webparts. I want to deploy it to my dev/test new webapp so that I have both webapps working with their own versions (ie both 1.0 and 2.0) until 2.0 is released. I have a couple of options:
1) change all the AssemblyVersion/AssemblyFileVersion to 2.0 of every feature,package,assmebly; Add a assemblyredirect in web.config only for the v2.0 webap. (There are about 60 references i have to change from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168)
2) deploy the v2.0 to bin instead of gac (this didnt work as i get security exceptions - cannot allowpartiallytrusted callers). My v1.0 is in gac.
Questions: 1) Is there any other recommended way? 2) Is #1 the only solution or 3) Is there a easy way to make #2 work?
