Version 1.3 of the Remoting.Corba library has been released.  The
package can be downloaded from either of these locations:



Remoting.Corba (pronounced "remoting dot corba") is an open-source
.NET library that integrates CORBA/IIOP support into the .NET Remoting
architecture.  It allows .NET programmers to develop systems using C#
and Visual Basic .NET that interoperate with IIOP-based systems,
including CORBA systems, J2EE/EJB, and various application servers and
middleware products.

New features of Remoting.Corba version 1.3 include

- Server-side channel and combined client/server channel, allowing
implementation of CORBA servers and clients that use callback

- Improved serialization/deserialization implementation that caches
reflection information, improving run-time performance

- Support for insertion/extraction of primitive types with Any
(complex types are not yet supported)

- Client-side channel now reuses open connections between calls,
rather than opening and closing a connection for each remote

- Improved mapping for CORBA union types

- Support for oneway and asynchronous invocations

- Examples of using callbacks, using the CORBA Event Service, and
using the TAO Echo client and server, developed using the C# and
Visual Basic .NET programming languages

Upcoming work for version 1.4 will focus on fixing bugs and adding
features needed for "production quality" CORBA integration, including
an IDL Compiler and CORBA Naming Service support.  If you have any
interest in using Remoting.Corba, now would be a good time to give it
a try and to give the developers some feedback.
