Release Notes

This release has been tested and it is stable.
However, there were some core optimizations so this is considered to be a small test-run to make sure it is alright before tagging it as a stable release.
Please provide feedback, your input is important.

Changes from last version:
  • New Output Caching module for Client Channel. Useful feature, be sure to check it out in the showcases
  • New behavior attributes and extension elements (ActivationContextInitializerAttribute, ActivationContextExtensionBehaviorElement, ErrorContextHandlerExtensionElement)
  • A userful commonly-needed synchronized (thread-safe) dictionary was added: SynchronizedDictionary
  • Internal Optimizations and Mode Fixes. (Sequential channel management option work with asynchronous operations now)
  • ChannelInvokeContext was made an extensible object
  • Client Channel supports default single endpoint - No need to specify an endpoint name of the client endpoint in the configuration if there is only one for the specific contract
  • Configuration-less services hosting API improvements
  • When deriving from ClientChannel, you can override OnChannelFactoryCreated (new method) to apply anything you need.

Updated Showcases from last time:
  • Miscellaneous - Configuration Section - A sample of the new Configuration Section
  • ClientChannel - Basic - Simple comment indicating the ApplyBoosting can be set globally through the new configuration section.
  • Services - Hosting - Simple comment indicating the ApplyBoosting can be set globally through the new configuration section.
  • Services - Service Extensions - Simple comment indicating about the new behavior attributes and extension elements you can use to apply the extensions declarative or in configuration.
  • Services - Service Error Logging - An example for attaching the behavior in the configuration using the new extension element was added.
  • Client Channel - Output Caching - A new sample was added demonstrating the basic usage of the output caching
