Upcoming Rename: Autofac.Framework.DependencyInjection to Autofac.Extensions.DependencyInjection

autofac, net comments edit

As part of DNX RC1, the Microsoft.Framework.* packages are getting renamed to Microsoft.Extensions.*.

The Autofac.Framework.DependencyInjection package was named to follow along with the pattern established by those libraries: Microsoft.Framework.DependencyInjection -> Autofac.Framework.DependencyInjection.

With the RC1 rename of the Microsoft packages, we’ll be updating the name of the Autofac package to maintain consistency: Autofac.Extensions.DependencyInjection. This will happen for Autofac as part of beta 8.

We’ll be doing the rename as part of the beta 8 drop since beta 8 appears to have been pushed out by a week and we’d like to get a jump on things. For beta 8 we’ll still refer to the old Microsoft dependency names to maintain compatibility but you’ll have a new Autofac dependency. Then when RC1 hits, you won’t have to change the Autofac dependency because it’ll already be in line.

You can track the rename on Autofac issue #685.
