The team just released the BETA 1 version of Enterprise Library v5.0 and Unity v2.0 Beta 1. Please download it, evaluate it and give us your feedback. You can run this version side by side with earlier versions.

Excerpt from Grigori’s blog post:

We are very excited about the improvements we’ve made to the overall Enterprise Library architecture [link to blog] and configuration experience, both of Enterprise Library and Unity (with new configuration tools, fluent interface and IntelliSense support with new schemas). We also focused on making Enterprise Library easier to extend. Our Enterprise Library Contrib community has been active releasing additional providers and new blocks. We expect many more contributions to be added there, thus enriching the developer’s toolbox of available components, and helping us realize the vision of Enterprise Library – to speed up software development!
