FlickrNet 3.5 Release

Just a quick post to say I’ve release version 3.5 of the FlickrNet API library.

A couple of things regarding this version and the FlickrNet library roadmap:

  • This will be the last version to support the old Authentication model. Going forward only oauth will be supported.
  • This will also be the last version to support .Net Compact Framework.

Going forward I also hope the next version will support Windows Runtime as well, at least for .Net applications (not sure about JavaScript/C++ support yet).

Download it from http://flickrnet.codeplex.com/ or get it via NuGet.

Programming Windows, 6th Edition


I’ve already bought this book, which for $10 is a bargain. I’m only up to chapter 3 so far but I would say, this book could be for more than just Windows Metro developers. It is a very good introduction to XAML, via C#, so almost all of it so far is applicable to Silverlight, WPF and Windows Phone development. I suspect later chapters will be more specific to WinRT.
