Version 3.0.0

The interceptors (method, property, fields, constructor ...) from Cauldron.Interception.Fody were moved to Cauldron.BasicInterceptors and are now implemented as custom interceptors. Custom interceptors are "scripts" that are compiled and run by Cauldron during the build of your project. For more information check the wiki.

  • Cauldron.Interception.Fody: TimedCacheAttribute namespace change also reflected to weaver.

Bugfix

  • Cauldron.Interception.Fody: The weaving of the auto-ComponentAttribute attributed types caused an error in some cases if the type is not public.
  • Cauldron.Interception.Fody: Interceptors that uses ISyncRoot interface was not correctly weaved. This caused the object initialization to be weaved in the .cctor even though it is not static.
  • Capgemini.Cauldron.Win32.WPF: Now picks the correct Window implementation.
  • Capgemini.Cauldron.Win32.WPF: Bug regarding auto-selection of views in the navigator fixed.
  • Capgemini.Cauldron.Win32.WPF: Bug in CauldronTemplateSelector regarding view orientation fixed.
  • Capgemini.Cauldron.Win32.WPF: Fixed a bug that caused the application to crash if there are no IMultiValueConverter in the application.

2.0.8 BETA

Change

  • Capgemini.Cauldron.Yaml: Assemblies for Net45, Net451, Net452, Net46, Net461 and Net462 added

Old Release Notes

2.0.0 betas

  • NetCore and Desktop libraries combined to NetStandard 2.0
  • Cauldron.XAML renamed to Cauldron.Win32.WPF
  • UWP libraries are combined together to a single library
  • Win32 specific libraries has now the following nomenclature: Cauldron.Win32.*
  • DispatcherEx is now injectable. It uses the new UnitTest aware Factory resolver to inject either the dummy dispatcher or the real deal.
  • ComparerUtils renamed to Comparer

1.2.8

  • Breaking changes: Reorganisation of the XAML libraries
  • Skinning added (Skins from first version of Cauldron re-added)
  • The App class (which inherits from ApplicationBase) is now recognized as Splashscreen if it has assigned a view. The OnPreload method is only called if a view is assigned if the navigation-mode is not SinglePage.
  • Bug fixes in Interception.Fody
    • Properties as constructors now works as expected
    • ComponentConstructor attributes are now no longer removed after weaving
  • Locale class can now be injected without causing an error during Assembly verification
  • Singleton<> base class component construtor attribute removed, because it is redundant and causes errors.
  • NetCore versions of Cauldron.Interception, Cauldron.Core and Cauldron.Activator are now part of the NuGet package again.
  • Password scoring now works a bit better
  • Inline text for TextBlock fixed
  • XAML.Validation is now awaitable
  • Module OnLoad "interceptor" added
  • Bug fixes - see Incidents

1.2.7 (1.2.0 to 1.2.6 betas)

  • NetCore Dlls droped from package due to issues with Fody - This will be back as soon as NetCore and Fody works a lot better
  • Types with the component attribute get a hard-coded CreateInstance method. The Factory will use this method to create an instance of the type. This should give the factory an instancing performance almost on par with the new keyword.
  • Types that inherits or implements the following classes or interfaces are considered as components and will also recieve a CreateInstance method: ResourceDictionary, IValueConverter, INotifyPropertyChanged, FrameworkElement
  • ComponentConstructor Attribute
    • Now also accepts static Properties as Component constructor
    • New Property added: Priority; This is used by the Factory to order the result of CreateMany. 0 is lowest; uint.Max is highest.
  • Breaking changes in Assemblies class. Some methods and properties were removed without replacement.
  • Method and Property interceptor can now be used to intercept all methods and properties in a class. Excluded method can be attributed by the DoNotIntercept attribute.
  • CreateObject<> renamed to CreateType, which fits more to what it does.
  • Locale class redesigned for more performance
  • Localization source implementations now requires a component attribute
  • Basic implementation base classes added for ILocalizationSource
  • XML serialization/deserialization in Serializer class replaced by much faster JSON.NET
  • Breaking changes in Factory - The performance of the Factory was boosted with the following drawbacks
    • IFactoryInitializeComponent interface removed - Factory does not support this anymore
    • IFactoryExtension removed - The Factory is not extensible anymore :( ... To Resolve ambigousity the IFactoryResolver can be use instead.
    • This is the current performance of the factory
      Factory performance
  • Upgraded to the newest version of Fody
