That work is now almost complete, and we have a release candidate that you can download from http://downloads.red-gate.com/EAP/Smartassembly/SmartAssembly_184.108.40.2062_AnyCpu_rfcafb195a7eb.exe
Subject to the notes below, this release candidate should work the same as SmartAssembly 6.2. If you experience any problems that aren't described in the release notes, please tell us in this thread.
Version 6.5 RC - October 27th, 2011
This version contains a substantially rewritten engine, which will be faster for some users (and with little speed change for most users).
Other changes are:
- Tested with Windows Phone 7.1 RTM
Tested with Silverlight 5 RC
New 'Improve performance' option when using Automated Error Reporting
Improved command line options
Logging to help diagnose errors
Map files are no longer deleted automatically if the assembly was not marked as released
Fixed a bug where some code was not pruned when it could be. If you are an existing SmartAssembly user, you may need to add new exclusions to your code if the new, more aggressive, pruning causes problems.
Minor bug fixes
Requires .NET 3.5 to run
No longer works with .NET 1.1 main assemblies (but you can use SmartAssembly 6.5 with .NET 1.x dependencies)
We have also removed the 'Add incorrect metadata' option because it no longer offers a reasonable amount of protection.
