Hi everybody,
I'm writing an application which could load about 1000 plugins! Have you tested mef loading so many plugins?

I'm concerned about the preformance, but so far, I'm not even noticing that MEF is there, doing it's thing. I would expect that the preformance of MEF is very good, but I've not put it to the test yet. I will however do so in the near future and I'll be back with this information then.

Visual Studio loads even more than that. One thing you may want to consider for that many however is doing some caching for your catalogs so that they don't have to scan everything at startup time.
