Prism 5.0 for WPF just shipped.

Prism version 5.0 for WPF is now available. This version of Prism includes updates to existing and several new NuGet packages:

  1. Prism
  2. Prism.Composition (New)
  3. Prism.Interactivity (New)
  4. Prism.Mvvm (New)
  5. Prism.MefExtensions
  6. Prism.UnityExtensions

We’ve updated Prism 4.1 with bug fixes and a few new features. We’ve removed Silverlight support. Windows Phone 8.1 will be supported in a future project. I hope you find this guidance and accompanying libraries helpful and useful.

    Great job team!  Hope to see some news/attention on the Win/WP 8.1 for PRISM update.  As always… we want more!  But seriously, great job team on this update!

    Se ha eliminado el soporte para silverlight? Cual es el futuro de esa tecnologia entonces?

  3. Juan Carlos: The main reason we removed support for Silverlight was because BindableBase leverages the CallerMemberNameAttribute which is not available in Silverlight.

    Hey there …

    somebody knows about if Prism has MS-PL?

    thank you best regards

  5. Yes. Prism is currently under MS-PL but we're working on changing it to a less restrictive license.

    Thanks for your interest Perla.

    thank you Francis …

    I have another question …

    If I'm using Prism with MS-PL license in my development app  … Should I release it below MS-PL license?

    Best Regards

  7. Hello Perla,

    I can't provide you legal advice.

    However, I don't think you need to retain the license if you publish only binaries. If you publish source, on the other hand, you'll need to talk to legal counsel.
