New Common Service Locator library

Just read about a great new library from Glenn Block. The new library is on Codeplex and it provides a shared interface for IoC (Inversion of Control) containers. The library allows developers to build applications and frameworks which leverage IoC / Service location without being tied to a particular implementation.

It was a collaborative effort between P&P (Patterns and Practices), MEF (Managed Extensibility Framework) and several IoC authors including Chris Tavares (Unity), Jeremy Miller (Structure Map), Nate Kohari (Ninject), Mark Pollack(Spring) and Hamilton Verssimo (Windsor) who now carries a blue badge at Microsoft.
