I’ll not completely repeat the previous announcements, but here is a short list of the main features:
- Xamarin Support, now at the same level of functionality and testing as Windows Phone. It lets you use PostSharp to build applications that target iOS and Android, additionally to Windows, Windows Phone, and Windows 8.
- Visual Studio 2015 Support, including light bulb integration, live code diagnostics and coding guidance, makes it easier to get started with PostSharp, and then assists you in more complex tasks.
- Conservative NuGet Versioning prevents unwanted upgrades of PostSharp packages.
- PostSharp Explorer Improvements let you see where aspects are being used in your code.
- Shared Projects Support makes PostSharp integration with Visual Studio more relevant in large cross-platform projects.
- Localizable Code Contracts allow you to customize or localize the runtime exception texts thrown by code contracts.
As usually, RC quality means that we consider the quality of this release to be the same as of an RTM release, with the exception of end-user testing. It also means that the documentation is available.
