Autofac 3.0.2 update pushed to NuGet

Published on Monday, 08 April 2013

We have pushed some minor updates to the core Autofac package and a few of the integration packages to NuGet. There is a mix of enhancements and bug fixes across the different packages. You can find all the details below.

Autofac 3.0.2


  • Enabled XML documentation for all projects and added missing comments.
  • Minor performance improvements in reflection based activation.

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved issue 414 : Made sure the result from MetadataViewProvider is captured in the closure created for the delegate registration instead of being created on each invocation.
  • Resolved Issue 421 : Generic parameters constrained with complex generic types fail to resolve.

SignalR Integration 3.0.1


  • Added a RegisterHubs extension method for scanning based registration of hubs.
  • Changed the Autofac.Integration.SignalR project to target .NET 4.0 instead of .NET 4.5.
  • The RegisterHubs extension method now registers hubs as ExternallyOwned. There is no way to create a lifetime scope around hub invocations and we don't want the Disposer on the root lifetime scope holding onto instances.
  • Removed the IRegistrationSource for the SignalR dependency resolver so that registrations are not automatically created for the default services. This is because of a bug in the SignalR message bus blocking indefinitely when Dispose is called twice (discovered in self-hosting scenario). It is still possible to manually add registrations to replace the default services.

Web API Integration 3.0.1

Bug Fixes

  • ResolvedĀ  Issue 418 : Multiple IAutofacActionFilter causes each filter to execute multiple times. Filter wrappers are now only added once per ControllerType, FilterScope and MethodInfo combination.

Multitenant Support 3.0.2

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved Issue 409: Updated Castle references to 3.2.0.
  • Resolved Issue 402: Added extension method for easy tenant ID retrieval.

Castle DynamicProxy Integration 3.0.2

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved Issue 409: Updated Castle references to 3.2.0.
