The version 1.2.0 beta of the Windows Azure Toolkit for Social Games release today – is primarily a maintenance release that includes bug fixes and enhancements to the code base, revealed Nathan Totten.
“This is a ‘point’ release because there are a few breaking changes with the APIs that were made to clean up the overall code base. Although, there are no new features included, but you may notice improved performance and stability,” stated Totten.
The biggest changes in this release is that we are now using dependency injection throughout the solution. The toolkit uses the great Autofac library for injection, but you could easily swap out another library if you prefer.
“Additionally, we updated all the Nuget packages to their most recent versions. This includes the WCF Web APIs to Preview 6 and jQuery to version 1.7.1. Finally, we fixed a few bugs. There was a memory leak that some people were seeing in the worker role that should be fixed,” said Totten.
