Autofac 3.0 Final Release

Published on Wednesday, 30 January 2013

The NuGet packages and download zips are now available for the final release of Autofac 3.0. The biggest changes since Beta 2 are the introduction of an official SignalR integration (built against the RC1 version) and plenty more documentation on the wiki (with even more on the way). The release notes below outline the changes between Beta 2 and the final release. You find details for the previous beta versions on the release notes page. Thank you to everyone who tested the beta versions and provided the team with valuable feedback. A big shout out to Travis Illig for helping make 3.0 such a great release, and to Nicholas Blumhardt for starting such an awesome open source project.
