The best source of information is this article in the webs site:

although I guess that's the one you've been reading. Basically, you have
to create a new project type for your language. Then, you can override
the OnBuild and OnExecute methods and launch the compiler or the
application from there.

If you have more specific questions, feel free to ask (in the mailing
list or in IRC).
