Release Notes

Please report any bugs and feature requests in the issue tracker**

This is not a huge departure from what I had before, but it is significant enough that I decided to change the major version. This release will include a host of changes, bug fixes, and improvements. Please bare with me while I clean it up for a release. You can get the current code from the Source Code tab under the /trunk. I'll leave the old 1.1.0 release out here and you can see its source code under /tags/1.1.0 in the Source Code tab.

Changes include: {**Incomplete**}
*Server-side and client-side library separation - no more reference.cs file getting messed up when updating the web references
*Initialization handled using the built in initialization method. Now settings appear as attributes on the provider configuration vs a custom settings config section.
*numerous bug fixes that I've found by using this library.
*Synchronized my private library with the codeplex one. You get what I'm using.
*Built an optional Dynamic or Static service key. So now you can have a windows app that generates a key session and a web app that uses a static file.

Client-side is the web site or windows forms application that consumes these web services to access membership from a central server.
Server-side is the actual web site that hosts the web services providing the membership information.

Some caveats should be mentioned. This library is literally a passthrough to a server side membership provider. So any application using this shares its application name with the host application. Also, defining encryption, etc won't work because it relies on the server-side configuration for the SqlMembershipProvider. Since flat text is transmitted between the client applications and the server, you should use transport encryption (SSL/HTTPS) to protected your information. Also... all provider names server and client-side have to be the same name if you want to use the ASP.NET configuration tool on the client-side; I'll look into that so I can understand what's going on.

More documentation coming soon!

Source code includes Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 solutions

Stay tuned!
