This package exposes an enhanced developer experience for coding against the Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource (including build time validation). Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource allows for firing ETW events from managed code. It enables defining a strongly typed specification of an ETW provider that can be called by managed code. The EventSource class is also included in the .NET Framework. This package provides a newer version that has more features. It is meant to be used as a stop gap until those features it contains are ported to System.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource.
