  • Brought back DeploymentCatalog/Package classes (Silverlight only)
  • PartCreator renamed to ExportFactory<T> and moved to System.ComponentModel.Composition.Initialization assembly (Silverlight only)
  • Bug fixes
  • More samples added

Reviews for this release

Excellent Work! I use the MEF Visualizer Tool to see what is going on inside the MEF Composition Container.

Very excited to find the source, and a vs2008 version, here on codeplex. Thank you! @Sprender: One or two of the Samples do not compile under vs2k8 (nor vs2k10). But, the main ComponentModel project does compile just fine under both vs2008 and vs2010. @EricSch: as mentioned above, it compiles under vs2008 for me. And, I am using it in my mvc 1.0 site.

Thought "MEF Preview 9" would work with .NET 3.5 and VS2008, but seems that the projects are build with VS2010. Had to fix the project files.

MEF is just pure compositional goodness and is a compliments WPF beautifully.
