West Wind Technologies has released West Wind Application Configuration for .NET version 1.15, a small, open source .NET library that facilitates creating strongly typed configuration classes for your .NET applications. Go from code to configuration store not the other way around - read and write configuration data and create default configuration data in the configuration store from default values. Never again have missing configuration values. Store configuration in the default .NET .config files or use external XML or JSON files, strings and databases tables or create custom providers to easily create your own. You can have multiple configuration stores per application to segregate configuration logic smartly. This update adds JSON configuration file support and fixes a number of small issues. The library is available from NuGet and full source code is available on GitHub.
