32feet.NET v3.3 - Personal Area Networking for .NET
Build 3.3.0909 9th September 2011
This library provides a .NET networking API for devices and desktop computers running the Microsoft or Broadcom/Widcomm Bluetooth stacks, Microsoft Windows supported IrDA devices and associated Object Exchange (OBEX) services for both these mediums. Online documentation is integrated into your Visual Studio help. The object model has been designed to promote consistency between Bluetooth, IrDA and traditional TCP/IP networking.
Note For Widcomm, on desktop Windows make sure you copy the redist\btwapi.dll as well as the 32feetWidcomm.dll alongside your application. (Widcomm imply that they may sometimes install btwapi.dll themselves -- and not to install another copy if so. However I've never seen it installed by them).
This is largely a maintenance release with not many new features added. The most important changes since 3.2 are:
| Description || workitem |
| SelectBluetoothDeviceDialog displays each discovered devices immediately (using DiscoverDevicesAsync) || 31298 |
| [MSFT+Win32] BluetoothRadio.HardwareStatus when radio not present || 31087 |
| ObexWebRequest constructor taking BluetoothAddress and path || 30799 |
| [MSFT+WM] RemoveDevice throws ArgEx when device not remembered || 28782 |
| [Bluetopia] Log error if start-up fails || 30880 |
The full list of workitems is at http://32feet.codeplex.com/workitem/list/advanced?release=3.3&size=25&status=all
- Fix SdpBrowserDevice sample in installer (workitem 31229)
