Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource 1.1.24

Microsoft EventSource Library

This package exposes an enhanced developer experience for coding against the Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource (including build time validation). Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource allows for firing ETW events from managed code. It 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

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 currently active activities.

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