Hey folks, just wanted to let you know that we've just uploaded the results of our first sprint into TFS source control. Please take a look and let us know what you think.

The current tree isn't much different from Entlib 4.1 - yet. Primarily the changes are infrastructural. We rearranged the tree slightly, and spent some time cleaning up old code, scripts and build files that weren't being used anymore. The biggest change is that all the blocks now build into a single common bin directory instead of spreading the binaries out throughout the tree. This simplifies a lot of things in the build process and installer creation. We also removed the delay signing settings from the project files; signing is now down through a command line switch.

Feature wise, this drop includes the start of our DI container refactoring work. We started with the Crypto and Exception handling blocks. Take a look at the Unity extensions to see the new approach we're taking.

Thanks, and please let us know what you think!
