Release date: May 1, 2016

What's New

  • .NET client is now available via Nuget (roadmap/388) Learn more

  • Updated to .NET Framework 4.5.2 (tickets/377)

    This allows the client to directly use native Websocket APIs, if provided by the .NET runtime.

  • .NET client now supports native WebSocket (RFC-6455) protocol (tickets/377)

    This provides native Websocket support when deployed to Windows mobile devices or when cross compiled to mobile devices via Xamarin. Without Kaazing’s libraries, these runtimes do not support native WebSocket or have buggy implementations (e.g. see this Xamarin bug)

Known Issues

  • The cipher suites enabled out-of-the-box in Kaazing Gateway are not compatible with WebSocket native connections for the Xamarin .NET client. TLS connections will fail with a warning stating "protocol is disabled or cipher suites are inappropriate" or "failure to negotiate cipher suites" (tickets/303)

    Workaround: Set the cipher suites in the Kaazing gateway as follows:

  • JMS MapMessage Maximum/Minimum values may be rounded during conversion between different .NET platforms and among other clients (tickets/352)

    Workaround: Test your particular usage in your particular environment

  • Xamarin WebSocket client will not establish a connection on Android until the INTERNET permission flag is enabled in AndroidManifest.xml (tickets/286)

    Workaround: See the following for more information:

System Requirements

  • .NET Framework 4.5.2 or higher
