Release highlights

Core 1.12.0 Changelog

Added

  • Added HttpPipeline.CreateHttpMessagePropertiesScope that can be used to inject scoped properties into HttpMessage.

IoT Device Update 1.0.0-beta.2 Changelog

  • Update root namespace from Azure.Iot.DeviceUpdate to Azure.IoT.DeviceUpdate

Event Hubs 5.4.0 Changelog

New Features

  • The Event Hubs clients now support shared key and shared access signature authentication using the AzureNamedKeyCredential and AzureSasCredential types in addition to the connection string. Use of the credential allows the shared key or SAS to be updated without the need to create a new Event Hubs client.

  • The Properties collection used by EventData is now lazily allocated, avoiding memory bloat when not used.

  • The SystemProperties collection used by EventData will not use a shared empty set for events that have not been read from the Event Hubs service, reducing memory allocation.

  • Multiple enhancements were made to the transport paths for publishing and reading events to reduce memory allocations and increase performance. (A community contribution, courtesy of danielmarbach)

Key Bug Fixes

  • The AMQP library used for transport has been updated, fixing several issues including a potential unobserved ObjectDisposedException that could cause the host process to crash. (see: release notes)

Event Hubs - Event Processor 5.4.0 Changelog

New Features

  • The EventProcessorClient now supports shared key and shared access signature authentication using the AzureNamedKeyCredential and AzureSasCredential types in addition to the connection string. Use of the credential allows the shared key or SAS to be updated without the need to create a new processor.

  • Multiple enhancements were made to the AMQP transport paths for reading events to reduce memory allocations and increase performance. (A community contribution, courtesy of danielmarbach)

Key Bug Fixes

  • The AMQP library used for transport has been updated, fixing several issues including a potential unobserved ObjectDisposedException that could cause the host process to crash. (see: release notes)

Attestation 1.0.0-beta.2 Changelog

  • Fixed bug #19708, handle JSON values that are not just simple integers.
