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 ;)
