Windsor 3 beta 1 is released (along with other goodies)

The title says it all. If you can’t wait grab the binaries here (Windsor with Castle Core and facilities) and here (just Core). Nuget package will hopefully follow soon.

What’s in it?

This is a major release and there’s quite a lot of new features, as well as some significant changes under the covers. There’s a high level overview of highlights for the release in the wiki, so please have a look there. More detailed changelog, and list of breaking changes is available as part of the package.

Remember it’s a beta release. Documentation and samples are still being updated and some features are not yet implemented or not fully baked. However it is very important that you don't wait for the final release to upgrade, so that we can find and fix all the issues before final release. I'm not asking you to use it in production, but I'd really appreciate if you'd take the time to branch your apps, try to upgrade, run your unit tests, play with new version, and report any issues you may find. And ask your colleagues, friends and random people on the street to do the same!

And if you find any issues, do report them.

Have fun and happy coding,
I hope you like it

Hi, last time I tried to update Windsor I was constrained by an other dependency (NServiceBus). Obviously NServiceBus is not your responsibility, I was though wondering if you've any advice regarding managing difference versions of Windsor? Have you any experience of isolating legacy versions?

Hi Ed,

I was working with Udi Dahan recently to update NServiceBus for Windsor 3, and TTBOMK NSB 3 will be workiing with Windsor 3 when it ships.

NHibernate no longer depends on Castle.Core.dll, which should make the entire problem of dependency management much less severe.

Usually well designed frameworks are not tightly coupled to the container so I never found the problem to be too severe, at most I had to rebuild integration projects against newer version but that's pretty straightforward most of the time.
