Spec Review: Target Framework Filtering

Jul 7, 2011 at 5:00 PM

We've written up a brief spec of how we plan to implement the target framework filtering feature. Feel free to review and provide feedback here.

Brief summary:

When installing a package into a project, we'd like to automatically filter the list of packages to only those that apply to the project based on the libraries in the package. There'd be a UI option to show all packages, but we wouldn't force the user to select a target framework.

Also, package authors won't have to explicitly specify anything. The assemblies in the lib folders allows us to implicitly determine this.
