To facilitate using the library in Visual Studio 2005 Betas I have made a few minor updates to the managed Bluetooth library, new/fixed in this release:-
- Now works under .NETCF 1.0, .NETCF 2.0, .NET 1.1 .NET 2.0 (Not tested under the .NET 1.0 desktop framework but should work).
- On Windows CE remote name lookups are performed “on-demand” rather than during device discovery to reduce discovery time.
- Reintroduced the BluetoothSocket helper class which provides a shortcut to create a Socket for working with Bluetooth independently of the existing BluetoothClient / BluetoothListener classes.
- Removed OpenNETCF.dll dependency, cures deployment problems on desktop machines.
