Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource.Redist 1.1.24

Microsoft EventSource Library Redistribution Package

This package includes the class Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource which enables firing ETW events from managed code. This is the "runtime" or "redist" EventSource package and should be referenced directly only by other NuGet packages that need the EventSource functionality. Application developers that need this functionality should instead reference the Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource NuGet package which provides an enhanced developer experience.

     This package enables defining a strongly typed specification of an ETW provider that can be called by managed code. The EventSource class is also included in the .NET Framework. This package provides a newer version that has more features. It is meant to be used as a stop gap until those features it contains are ported to System.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource.

     For more details, have a look at

     New features:
     - ETW channel support
     - Support for static registration

     Supported Platforms:
     - .NET Framework 3.5
     - .NET Framework 4.0
     - .NET Framework 4.5
     - Windows Store apps
     - Windows Phone App 8.1

Release Notes

The 1.1 release of EventSource has a number of new non-trivial features

   DynamicEvents - Allows events defined 'on the fly' by without creating a 'event method'.
   RichPayloads - Allows specially attributed classes and arrays as well as primitive types to be passed as a payload.

   ActivityTracking - Causes Start and Stop events to tag events between them with ID that represents all currrntly active activties.

   All of these features are non-trivial in the sense that they need more explaination than release notes justify.  
   Eventually MSDN will have this documentation, and you can go to to get a preview.


This package has no dependencies.
