Hey there, for those used to working with WSP Builder, does anyone know of a way to get the same "Copy to hive" and "Copy to GAC" functionality in SP 2010 and VS 2010 that was in WSP Builder?

Check out Community Kit for SharePoint: Development Tools Edition. It has Quick deploy and loads of other nifty stuff for VS2010 CKS:DEV

By the way WSPBuilder has a beta for 2010. If Copy to 14/GAC is all you need, you can use it as well.

What I think is better in WSPBuilder is the availability of built in shortcuts that let you avoid too much mousing about. – Alexey Krasheninnikov Sep 11 '10 at 17:19

There is a DeploymentTarget attribute in the Package manifest which can be set to either GlobalAssemblyCache or WebApplication, which should replicate the WSPBuilder switch.
