Bring on the AWESOME!!! Caliburn.Micro v1.4 Released

Today I’m happy to announce the official release of Caliburn.Micro v1.4. This release brings a ton of bug fixes across all platforms, nuget fixes…and best of all…full support for WinRT and WP8. That means that Caliburn.Micro now supports WPF, SL4, SL5, WP7, WP8 and WinRT. AWESOME!!! You can get it on nuget.org or download the binaries directly from codeplex.

How did this happen you say? Well, not without generous help from the community who believed in this project and put in the hours to make it happen. Here’s a few people I’d like to mention:

  • Marco Amendola – A Caliburn veteran. Always working hard on bugs, features and community support.
  • Chin Bae – Master of our view location strategy.
  • Nigel Sampson – Monster WinRT port guru. He practically ported the entire thing himself. REALLY.
  • Thomas Ibel – Tons and tons of bug fixes and stability improvements.
  • Matt Hidinger – Did all the grunt work to get official WP8 support into this release.

I’d also like to thank all the community members who tested out this version, submitted feedback..and of course…thanks to everyone who submitted pull requests. It was a tremendous help!

Finally, I’d like to extend a special thank you to Scott Hanselman, Scott Hunter and the whole .NET team for supporting open source software and providing the necessary licenses I needed to actually build and release this version. It would not have been possible without their kindness and generosity.

For reference, here’s the full list of nuget packages and their descriptions:

  • Caliburn.Micro – The full framework compiled into an assembly.
  • Caliburn.Micro.Start - Includes Caliburn.Micro plus a starting bootstrapper, view model and view.
  • Caliburn.Micro.Container – The Caliburn.Micro inversion of control container (IoC); source code drop-in.
  • Caliburn.Micro.EventAggregator – The Caliburn.Micro event aggregator; source code drop-in.
  • Caliburn.Micro.INPC – The Caliburn.Micro INPC infrastructure: PropertyChangedBase, BindableCollection, Execute.OnUIThread and InDesignMode checking; source code drop-in.

Note: We have removed the starting bootstrapper, view and view model template code from the core package and added a new package, Caliburn.Micro.Start, which now has the core plus the startup files.

Go forth and build Xaml awesomeness! And stay tuned for an update on Durandal in the next few weeks too ;)

Awesome to see!  Just about to build my first WinRT app and of course I'll be using CM. :-)

Awesome, but... how do you set up a new WinRT app to use Caliburn.Micro? The "NuGet" documentation page shows what you need to do to your App.xaml to hook in the Bootstrapper in WPF, Silverlight, and WP7. But there's nothing on that page for WinRT. It's not even clear which project type I should start with.

I found the announcements of the WinRT port on compiledexperience.com, but they didn't have any usage info either. Are there some docs hidden away on somebody's blog that I didn't find? In a forum post somewhere?

@Joe

There's some blog posts on how to do it. We will try to update the site's docs in the next couple of days. I just forgot about that. Thanks for the reminder!

Here's a blog post on the subject for now: mikaelkoskinen.net/.../caliburn-micro-winrt-getting-started.aspx

It's a bit old, but should help point you in the right direction. We'll get the docs updated soon.

The WinRT sample app can also be referenced.

Perfect, thanks! That blog post looks like a great getting-started guide for the WinRT version.

This link from Nigel's blog should be good, too, because it talks about the changes for View-first and ViewModel-first (but assumes you already have a working Caliburn.Micro WinRT app): compiledexperience.com/.../view-view-model-calburn-micro

@Joe

There's also a WinRT sample if you download the release from the codeplex site. That should show a few things as well. Thanks for your patience.
