Unity DI container 1.0 shipped!

Microsoft patterns & practices is excited to announce the release of Unity 1.0.

As many of you already know, Unity is a lightweight, extensible dependency injection (DI) container. It facilitates building loosely coupled applications and provides .NET developers with the following advantages:

  • Simplified object creation, especially for hierarchical object structures and dependencies;

  • Abstraction of requirements; this allows developers to specify dependencies at run time or in configuration and simplify management of crosscutting concerns;

  • Increased flexibility by deferring component configuration to the container;

  • Service location capability; this allows clients to store or cache the container.

You can download Unity (binaries, source code, unit tests, documentation, and quickstarts) from:


The Unity team thanks our Industry Advisory Board and all members of the community who provided meaningful feedback in the past 3 months. We encourage you to continue doing so and engage on http://codeplex.com/unity
