Due to administrative reasons, we are unable to supply the normal installer at the moment but wanted to get a release out now. The code is stable, but this version is currently supplied without its normally installer, the libraries are not Strong-Name signed and the Help is not integrated into Visual Studio’s Help.
If your application is Strong-Named then you’ll need to sign the library yourself with a local key for now. We recommend you uninstall any previous version before you use this version, otherwise the compilers will use the old assemblies by default. Check the compiler output to check that the correct library assembly is being referenced. Sorry for the inconvenience.
The features and bug fixes in this release are as follows.
• Support for the Broadcom/Widcomm Bluetooth stack on both platforms.
• Support for discovering only Bluetooth devices in range (that are in discoverable mode). This is not supported on the Microsoft stack on Win32. (#21248)
• Ability to specify ServiceName on BluetoothListener. (#17170)
• Useability improvements to SelectBluetoothDeviceDialog. (#22868)
• Async versions of DiscoverDevices and GetServiceRecords. (#14899)
• Bug Fixes – See the list below, or the CodePlex Workspace for history for an up-to-date list.
