I installed the new version and I tried to recompile my application using the namespace : Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Configuration.Design.UI without success.

This namespace is not present.

Someone can give me some information about it ?

Thank you

The configuration design time has been completely rewritten, and you don't need to write design time nodes anymore.

What was your previous code doing that you depended on that assembly? If we know that there's probably an easy way to port to EL 5.

The code using this assembly was dedicated to configure a new block developped .

for each new different node, I written several classes herited from : Configuration Node, NodeBuilder, NamedConfigurationElement, UITypeEditor

Other classes to register the new block was written herited from : AddChildNodeCommand, CommandRegistar, ConfigurationDesignManager, SerializableConfigurationSection, ConfigurationSectionNode.
