Why ?

It is much too hard to implement new Menus for the Visual Studio Solution Explorer using the convoluted AddIn model of Visual Studio. In MME I have made this incredibly easy.

How ?

You just implement 2 methods of the IMenuManager interface, compile and place the resulting assembly in a directory. Viola! You get the MenuItems of your choice. You can follow the links provided here to see details about implementing and deploying Managed Menu Extensions.

The architecture of MME is explained in detail here.
