ReactiveUI Rebranding

ReactiveUI was created by Paul Betts whilst working in Office Labs at Microsoft, and released in early 2011. Since that time, ReactiveUI has become a mature framework trusted by Slack, GitHub, Amazon, Elastic and Microsoft, has become a member of the Dot Net Foundation, and actively maintained by the open-source community on GitHub. The work we do is sponsored by our wonderful Backers on OpenCollective.

Now, the Team focuses on improving developer accessibility of ReactiveUI. Numerous issues were fixed during the past year, missing xml documentation was added, exception messages were clarified. We are now at a level of maturity where chatlogs in the documentation pages aren't needed anymore. Most features of the framework are well-documented now, including testing, routing and activation. If you would like to learn ReactiveUI in-depth, step by step, consider purchasing the book "You, I and ReactiveUI" written by Kent Boogaart.

Another way of improving ReactiveUI is making the framework more attractive and recognizable. We are working now on updating the image of ReactiveUI documentation website, to follow modern design trends and to improve the user experience. We are pleased to show you the new ReactiveUI logo!

When developing it, we tried to make things as simple as possible, but still recognizable by developers who use ReactiveUI. The new logo is easier for printing, SVG and PSD files are available in our styleguide repository. Hope you love it, and more updates are yet to come, including design improvements of our website.

Removing ReactiveCommand abstract base class

The ReactiveUI team has been urging consumers for some time now to move away from the ReactiveCommand abstract class for properties. There are some slight nuiances with type constraints that can sometimes cause run time bugs. Because your property can resolve to an abstract base implementation doesn't mean you should define it that way. We are very adamante about creating a type safe environment where consumers don't have to worry about hidden runtime issues with the framework. RFC: Remove ReactiveCommand abstract base class was raised to address this exact issue.

ReactiveUI Succession Update

Rodney Littles, II

ReactiveUI has released several minor versions since 8.0. Some of the most recent versions have been released without Geoff having to push code, or prep issues. This is thanks to members of the core team, and community members who have stepped up to move the project forward. Glenn Watson has started to play a large role in the maintenance of ReactiveUI. There have been other's getting involved in enhancing some of the platform logic, and documentation. Community members have been identifying and resolving issues that help make our framework better. What does this mean for ReactiveUI succession? It's happening. What does that mean for you? It means we are working on ways to improve ReactiveUI and make it easier to consume. We have several initiatives on the team and there are a few RFC's planned for the 9.0 release that might be of interest.
