New Version


PostSharp Framework replaces PostSharp Professional.

  • New Platforms
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 – PostSharp now supports the new MSBuild project format, side-by-side installations of VS, lightweight solution loads, and achieved significant performance improvements.
    • C# 7.0 – Tested and fixed all aspects with the new features of C# 7.0, including value-typed tasks and multiple return values.
    • Microsoft .NET Core 1.1 – You can now build applications that run on .NET Core 1.1, but you can still only build and debug them on a Windows machine running Visual Studio.
    • .NET Standard 1.3 – Support for .NET Core is achieved through .NET Standard, so you can use PostSharp in your own .NET Standard class libraries.
  • New Features
    • Code Contracts – It is now possible to add code contracts to return values and out or ref parameters. The values are validated when the method succeeds.
    • Architecture Framework – Added NamingConventionAttribute, ParameterValueConstraint  and  ReferenceConstraint.

PostSharp Framework includes everything you need to automate the implementation or validation of your own patterns, including the Architecture Framework which used to be a part of PostSharp Ultimate. However, PostSharp Diagnostics is removed. PostSharp Professional customers will be offered a free subscription to PostSharp Diagnostics for the whole duration of their PostSharp Professional subscription that has already been paid for. Support for the license server is also removed.
