PostSharp 1.0 RTM

They've finally announced it.

I've been wanting to try out AOP, and now I have no "it's not RTM yet" excuse.

Have you ever considered using Castle's IInterceptor implementation for AOP? It doesn't require IL weaving and performs pretty well. If you are using Castle Windsor, the integration is pretty awesome.

Yes, but as with the entire Castle stack though, there's the 'no RTM' problem. It's been in RC status since January 2006 (IIRC). That isn't encouraging.

Work from the trunk. That's the man's way.

PostSharp is great - very good static weaver...if you really want to blow your mind, try out Typemock - uses AOP to create your mocks for testing using dynamic weaving, which allows you to mock privates, statics, abstracts, etc without having to trade your design for your testing framework (I doubt I'll use RM as much after this) - it's pretty slick; overall gives you a-lot more flexibility in testing - and if you're not doing a data application then it's essentail. Very helpful on brown-field applications too.

The pricing is an issue for some - but I find it worth every penny. It's like the equivalent of a few hours of work which it saved me the first day I used it.
