Microsoft's open source Windows Installer XML project.
Huh? Microsoft embracing open source? Well, do note that this is something that creates Microsoft setup packages, so there's little altruism here. As someone noted in the Slashodt post about this:

The initial developer has a blog entry about it.
Got something to add? Send me email.
