Release Notes

100% working on both xbox 360 and X86 platforms
Additions:
New namespace. AndrewsXnaHelpers.XML
Namespace contains 2 classes to aid in XML serializing.
_XmlSerializer
This class contains variables that store where it will currently read and write to, good if what your writing is dynamic.
QuickSerializer
A faster version of the _XmlSerializer class. This is a static class so it is ideal for loading things at the start of a project such as loading settings.
The name and path of the XML file to serialize or deserialize has to be known and passed along with the Serialize and Deserialize methods.

The Helpers namespace has had some new additions as well.
The most noticeable are the Bar and Box managers which have been setup to be serializable without any code modifications.
The Bar and Box manager are essentially the same except for the data they store.
These can be used for UI items such as health bars or to create a backdrop for an onscsreen menu. I will have more info on how to use this on the documentation page.

Several new methods have been added to the Rectangle Extenders and Texture2D extenders.
Most notable are the DrawAtOrigin methods. They are the same as the old ones except they draw the rectangle or sprite at its origin.
