Hi,

I'd like to use/try DataObjects.Net using .NET 3.5 in Visual Studio 2010. We need to use .NET 3.5 because we deploy to Azure which is only supporting .NET 3.5. I'd like to think that as soon as 4.0 comes out, they'll support it immediately ... but we know that's not likely.

So, has this issue been resolved in such a way that lets me compile with .NET 3.5 in VS 2010? http://code.google.com/p/dataobjectsdot ... ail?id=507 Is there a work-around or some other build I can download?

Thanks

As far as I can judge (never tried this), compiling .NET 3.5 project based on DO4 shouldn't be a problem under VS2010. I'll ask the team to evaluate this tomorrow - may be someone even already tried this.

Issue 507 isn't much related to VS2010 - it is mainly related to .NET 4 & PostSharp 2.0 (currently we use PS1.0, so a migration to PS2.0 is implied in this issue).

Just got a disapproval from one of our developers - he already tried to use DO4 with VS2010. As far as he remembers, PostSharp 1.0 crashes with VS2010 (most likely, because default MSBuild scripts are different there), so currently DO4 won't work with VS2010, and thus you can use it only with VS2008.

The good news is that migration to PS2.0 is ~ 50% finished now. When it's done, we'll try to release an intermediate build allowing to use DO4 with both VS2008 and VS2010.

Well, the migration process to PostSharp 2 has been finished as well as migration to VS 2010 & .NET 4.0. Right now we are checking tests, samples, etc. and implementing licensing component.

According to the changes in the licensing policy http://blog.alexyakunin.com/2010/03/upcoming-changes.html, future versions of DataObjects.Net will require valid license or will be operational within limited period of time (trial). In both cases installation of PostSharp 2 will be required.

Some disambiguations:

  • We decided to bind upgrade to new licensing model with upgrade to VS.NET 2010 & PostSharp 2.0 - that's the main reason of delay. So it's true that internal version of DO4 is already working with VS2010; moreover, it passes all the tests with the same score.

  • That's why changes to Google Code are pushed only to "stable" branch now.

  • It's still under the question if v4.3 RC will include licensing component. If it won't include it, it will be shipped with PostSharp 2.0 Trial instead of unlocked PostSharp 2.0 with redistributable license we have, so it will function during 45 days (during this period we will release a version using our own licensing components & unlocked PS2.0).

  • New licensing model will be described in separate post shortly.

  • Existing license owners will be mapped to new licenses w/o any feature restrictions in comparison to the licenses they have.

  • DO v4.3 won't be available under GPL license. But there will be academic / non-profit / DO4 MVP licenses you must explicitely request from us.

  • Repository @ Google Code won't include v4.3 changes, but read-only access to our own repository will be provided to owners of appropriate licenses.

The work is actually stucked on me:

  • I'm the person responsible for everything related to installation (installers, scripts, etc.). This is the only left part now.

  • All this week I'm mainly in the bed: got some kind of hard quinsy, that isn't finished yet.

If I'll feel much better today, there is still a chance VS2010 version will be shown this week :(

Ara, I'm not. Or, more honestly, this really happens periodically, but this is definitely not the case. I actually don't remember if I was ever ill for so long after the school. Anyway, today I really feel myself noticeably better (switched to different pills), although yesterday it was under the question if I should be hospitalized or not.

Hi Alex, hope you're getting better.

Sorry to ask again, but does the latest nightly build include the new .NET 4.0/VS 2010 support? Also, does the license for DO include the rights to use PostSharp 2.0 in my own projects or do I need a separate license for that?

Thanks.


Alex (Xtensive) wrote:

No, not yet. Nightly builds are generated from stable branch, but VS2010 version is in development (default) branch.

DO4 license will allow you to use only our own PostSharp aspects & weavers in your projects. I.e. you won't need a separate license for PostSharp, if you'll use DO4. But if you're going to develop your own PostSharp aspects, you'll need it.

I know you're working on it, but can we have an ETA please? It's really important, considering VS2010 was launched.

We are going to get the stable version at the beginning of the next week, so please be patient. Unfortunately, the migration process to PostSharp 2 is quite tricky.

Alex, stop being lazy, get out of bed, update those installers, and give us DO4 + VS2010!!!! :wink:

Hope you feel better soon!

I was certainly joking, Alex, and I really do hope you get better soon - not for this feature, but rather for your own sake!

Thanks. I'm getting better, but the process is pretty slow - that's disappointing :(

Unfortunately, we have to move forward with the project with the current technology parameters. I'll definitely be looking into DO4 again when it's VS2010 ready!

Thanks again

Thanks - we're working on this. I'll drop a link to announce here, when it's done.
