Hi there,

for those who want to evaluate xServer through xServer.NET it is helpful to know where to get the latest version of the SDK or the demo suite.
  • THe SDK is available for download at the customer area (login required).
  • The stand-alone xServer.NET Demo center is available at this public space.
  • Our wizzard Oliver also provides some interesting samples on his xServer.NET github.
Best regards,
Bernd

Hello Oli,

I was told that our DLL is not signed. Do we also provide a signed version?
If not: what is needed to get it signed?

Best regards and have a good start into 2019!

Hello Bend,

happy Neuer!

There was some confusion regarding strong-naming of assemblies even among Microsoft. This is why i didn't add the strong name key to the project. But this is settled now https://www.pedrolamas.com/2018/09/11/start-strong-naming-your-assemblies

I've added the strong name key to the source project and made a new release https://github.com/ptv-logistics/xserver.net/releases/tag/v1.7.0.0. You can also download the binaries there.

One caveat with strong names is that you have to be careful with versioning, or you will end in DLL hell. Strong named assemblies can be installed into the GAC (global assembly cache). So the rules will apply as follows:

  • You can clone a release-tag or download sources and binaries here https://github.com/ptv-logistics/xserver.net/releases/.
  • The master branch always has a snapshot version number (now 1.7.*). You can build it by your own if you need a bugfix immediately (or if you like to contribute ;) )
  • After an "official" release (next will be 1.8.0.0) this version will be tagged and the master branch will get snapshot version 1.8.*
The deluxe version would be to publish the binaries via https://www.nuget.org. We could add this if there is some demand.
