Aaron Skonnard also has a list going on MSDN of new features for WCF in .Net 4. Our lists are going to look a bit different because I’m covering more, smaller features and Aaron’s list is targeted at beta 1. Some of the topics in the MSDN list though are:

  • Simplified configuration
  • Standard endpoints
  • IIS hosting without an SVC file
  • Discovery
  • Routing service (previously included with Dublin)
  • REST caching and help page
  • Workflow services
  • Non-destructive queue receive
  • Simple byte stream encoding
  • ETW tracing
