Jeremy D. Miller has just announced the availability of StructureMap 2.5.1. This incremental release has a bunch of bug fixes and a few new features.
Here are a few of the updates from the release notes:
* Fixed issue with With<T>(object).GetInstance<U>() functionality. This is now much more robust.
* Bug fix for Hybrid scoping
* TryGetInstance() and TryGetNamedInstance().
* Ignore setter emitting for indexer properties -- fixed a bug reported on the forum
* Multithreading lock problem fixed by Josh
* Patch for session lifetime. There is now an option for "CacheBy(InstanceScope.HttpSession)"
* Fixed Public IDictionary setter injection in xml : http://groups.google.com/group/structuremap-users/browse_thread/thread/21265544d73cd395?hl=en
* Pete Johnson's fix for ObjectFactory.Configure() setting policy. You can now set the scoping/lifecycle of a PluginType from Configure()
* EjectAllInstances<T>() clears out Singleton objects now (and calls Dispose() if appropriate)
* Josh has added an experimental debugger visualizer for StructureMap Container's
* The AutoMocker isn't as whiny about RhinoMocks versions. There is also an AutoMocker strategy for Moq now as well
* A minor performance enhancement that stops StructureMap from doing a scan of all types on the StructureMap assembly itself.
Jeremy also posted a list of items that he plans for the 2.6 release, and also says that this is a good time to ask for things.
If you haven’t signed up for the StructureMap Google list be sure to do so and ask your questions there.
