After the release of Enterprise Library 5.0 and Unity 2.0 in April 2010, our team focused on getting the hands-on labs out and the new Developer’s Guide to Enterprise Library, including versions localized to Russian (already out) and now working on Japanese, Chinese and Spanish editions as well as a Visual Basic edition. We also had many events to present at and interact with developers around the world, including TechEd North America, p&p symposia in Russia, Ukraine, and our flagship event in Redmond. Watch for the upcoming presentations at TechEd China and the p&p symposium Japan later this year.
I would like to provide a quick update on what’s coming from the Enterprise Library team in the next 8 months or so. Let’s take a look.
Instead of a large release (like v5 was), you’ll notice several smaller releases planned. They include:
1) SqlConfigurationSource (tentative release date – Nov 2010)
2) Enterprise Library Extensibility Hands-on Labs (tentative release date – Nov 2010)
3) Enterprise Library Silverlight Integration Pack (tentative release date – Apr 2011)
4) Enterprise Library Web Integration Pack (tentative release date – June 2011)
In the past 6 months, there were over 300K downloads of Enterprise Library 5.0 and the related guidance (doc, labs, videos). We are energized by the level of adoption and look forward to future releases. As always, we need your feedback.
I'm personally excited about the Ent Lib Web Integration Pack. I am using Unity and the Logging Application Block in my ASP.NET MVC 2 projects currently.
Buenas, hace unos días, el gran Grigori Melnik escribió un post con el Roadmap para Enterprise Library
Do you mind if I ask what tool you used to make your roadmap image?
What about the new version (5.x)? What are the plans for new functionalities? Is there any way we can submit suggestions?
Nothing fancy, just Powerpoint.
You probably mean v6.x. Yes, you can submit those suggestions. Feel free to post them on entlib.codeplex.com, or post them here, or email them to me directly.
Will there be support for ODP.Net in Enterprise library next release, i know one is in community project but it is in ent lib version 4
Congrats on the Silverlight release. How long until we hear more about the MVC3 update? Better VAB integration would be great for us. Being able to have EF4.1 attribute mapping that doesn't duplicate/conflict VAB attributes when found by MVC3 would be important.
