C# OpenID library DotNetOpenID 2.0 released

The open source OpenID C# library DotNetOpenID has been released.  This is a really exciting release that adds full support for OpenID 2.0 while preserving full backward compatibility for interoperating with OpenID 1.x.  It is a mature library with lots of helps for diagnostics and debugging, and a balance between simplicity and extensibility.  For a complete list of enhancements from the last release, check out the VersionChanges page.

Here are the highlights of this library and particularly this release:

We've had over 150 beta testers leading to this release and fixed several bugs along the way.  Thanks to all those who helped field test this release!

This is a release that I personally have worked very hard to build and write tests to make sure its as secure as possible.  Please consider supporting past and future development with a donation (any size).

  3. You can get help from the dotnetopenid project site, which links to an active Google Group called "dotnetopenid". Your questions should be posted there.

  4. sorry to ask this but what i DotNetOpenID?

    You can find out what DotNetOpenId is and does by visiting the web site for it, which is linked to from the body of this blog post.
