Those of you that follow the Autofac Google Group will no doubt be aware that despite some changes in project leadership plenty of work has been going into the 3.0 release. With the amount of refactoring that has been done we wanted to make a Beta release available for wider testing before declaring 3.0 stable. I want to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to my partner in crime, Travis Illig, who has been in there smashing through the issues with me.
This post outlines the new features in the latest pre-release NuGet packages for the Autofac integrations with MVC 4 and Web API. You can find more information about the initial support for dependency injection with Web API controller instances in my previous post.
I have released updated NuGet packages and downloads for Autofac. The core library only has a couple of updates: a new module scanning feature and some performance improvements for the .NET 4 build. The ASP.NET MVC 4 and ASP.NET Web API integrations have also been updated to the RC version.
