Release Notes

This is the pre-release version 0.1 of the library for serialization/deserialization of OData built on Microsoft .NET 4. This is an early preview build of the library that includes support for serializing up to OData V2.0.

Included in this version of the library:
- serialization of OData up to version 2.0
- early implementation of an OData Uri parser that supports a subset of the total OData Uri space
- A set of interfaces for describing OData metadata as Edm

Features being considered for the next version:
- deserialization of OData
- serialization of some of the new constructs being proposed on OData.org for OData V3.0
- serialization/deserialization of CSDL, used mainly for the $metadata endpoints
- enhancements to the Uri Parser that support more of the OData Uri space

The download includes a Visual Studio 2010 solution that will build the library.

Reviews for this release

We were able to integrate serialization and URI parsing into a working project. The largest hurdle was implementation of a metadata provider. Part of the difficulty was due to differences between the production version of IDataServiceMetadataProvider and the library version. It works well and we are *very* keen on seeing deserialization and expansion of URI parsing (into expressions).
