Yesterday Bob Brumfield and I gave a talk on EntLib5.0 at p&p summit in Redmond . We’ve discussed the underlying architectural refactoring and previewed the following improvements:
We also demoed container independency story which allows to switch the underlying container. Out of the box, you get EntLib shipped with Unity, but if you prefer to use another DI container, now you can easily switch over.
We are planning several webcasts to share these demos.
In the meantime, feel free to check out our recent bits here and provide feedback.
How does this new release fit in with some of the other Microsoft Enterprise Applications such as SharePoint?
Ahh, thank you very much!
We looked into using EntLib 4 for our next project but failed on the fact that some settings (for instance logging) should be configurable by the end user. This turned out near impossible in a EntLib 4-powered service, which would need to be restarted in order to update necessary bits.
The setup up until now seemed to suit one-off development but wasn't useful for web distributed s/w suite. The fluent i/f, I hope, will make this a reality - I'm eager to check it out, would make a massive improvement!
