I'm currently setting up a new dev environment and it's an opportunity to review the tools within my workflow. I just wondered if anyone has any other thoughts on documentation-generation tools for JSL?

Slight branch to this discussion: here are some open source utilities that I find indispensable for program development:
TortoiseSVN: Helps programmers manage different versions of the source code for their programs (source code control system). Apache™ Subversion (SVN)® client, implemented as a Windows shell extension.
