First a word about the recent posts concerning bugs: the daily/weekly time I have available to take care of CGF is reduced. I have three fronts to take care:
- users documentation and samples
- corrective maintenance (aka bug fixing)
- new features
While Rocky's ebooks were in the making, I took some time to bug fixing and to users documentation. Now there is enough information on the published ebooks to get CGF back on the new features track. So, samples and fixing must wait for Silverlight and DAL
THIS CONCERNS CSLA 4 TARGET ONLY
While designing the new features I realized the templates are full of legacy stuff:
- Support for ActiveObject
- Support for DataSet Loading scheme
- Support for DataPortal old way of handling child objects (pre "Child_")
- Support for Update properties (introduced on CTP 1)
While 3) is going to disappear, 4) may go underground until I find a realiable way of doing it and 2) is just waiting for an alternative. No questions here. Templates are too complicated as they are and they must be simplified.
Back to the point, I never used ActiveObjects, I don't know if they run under CSLA.NET 4 and if no one is using them, they will also go as they are the biggest template "pollutant".
