Release Notes

3.0.1
 • Tons of bug fixes.
 • Improved the way PortableRest handles parameters being sent over the wire.
 • Added constructor overload that accepts a custom HttpMessageHandler for all requests the HttpClient makes.
 • Added support for using the AsyncOAuth NuGet package for leveraging OAuth in your requests.
 • Added support for specifying the JsonSerializerSettings on a client-wide or per-request basis, with request-specific settings taking precedence.
 • Enhanced the SendAsync method to pass exceptions thrown by the serializer into the RestResponse.
 • The serializer now strips namespaces from XML payloads before attempting to de-serialize. You may need to update your objects to [DataContract(Namespace="")] if you use XML-based Rest services.
 • WARNING: Strong name signing is removed in this version. See the PortableRest.Signed package for those needing SNK support (but you will not be able to use AsyncOAuth, as it is not signed).

2.5
