Autofac 4.0.0 is in the wild
As Travis mentioned in his earlier blog post the road to 4.0.0 has certainly been an interesting one. This is largely in part because we got on the .NET Core train back in the early DNX days, and as a result experienced all the renames and breaking changes that come with using early bits of a new technology. It certainly highlighted to me just how much I had been taking for granted to the excellent tooling support that Visual Studio provides. There were a few points in time when the Visual Studio tooling would align with a public beta or RC version of .NET Core, but that wasn't useful to us because we had already moved on to working with the next release which was no longer compatible with that tooling. The tooling team was always playing catch up with what had already been finished and fixing things that had been broken. On the plus side I ended becoming more familiar with the new .NET Core command line tools and Visual Studio Code which is a great code editor that you can definitely be productive in.
