The "prohibit uppercase" fix is applied, so officially it is *fixed*.

[master 37c75e0]

I'll leave this open so far in case as enhancement issue though - until we can get renaming works somehow.

Actually we need more fixes, so moving back from enhancement to normal.

And it's not in the next release.

After several attempts to deal with this issue, I ended up to revert the "prohibit uppercase" change and added new resource renaming support in library projects too.

Comment 6 Atsushi Eno 2013-02-22 13:52:39 UTC
Actually the solution still needs some more work - when I renamed resources it resulted in that the name case map file wasn't created and the resources were somehow already in lowercase, causing designer.cs inconsistency.

(bug #10078 could affect on fixing this issue, but the issue itself must be isolated and specific to this bug.)
Comment 7 Atsushi Eno 2013-02-26 08:12:28 UTC
I believe 2abad8d9 fixed this part of the issue of the entire "resource designer not updated" issue (i.e. #9370 + #10078).

For #10078 I have different fix that somehow uncovered another general build issue.
