What’s New in Unity 1.1?

– Remove all obsolete ObjectBuilder code;

– Fix the bug: lifetime managers with open generic types;

– Fix the bug: RegisterType was overriding RegisterInstance;

– Performance improvement when resolving singletons;

– Made some internal classes public to make it easier to write certain type of extensions (the ones that need to customize how the dependencies are resolved;

– Improved error messages when value resolution fails.

What’s NOT in Unity yet?

– Interception mechanism is not implemented yet; it is on top of our Unity backlog though;

– Policy Injection Application Block can still be used if AOP functionality is needed;

– No tool support for DI configuration.

 As always, your feedback is invited. Please post your stories, questions, screams on Codeplex. We are listening!
