Release Notes

Massive overhaul of the MemPtr.vb backend. Most functions have been modified to use dynamically generated methods via delegate, written in IL opcodes, to transfer memory to and from unmanaged memory buffers. Speed increase over p/Invoke is dramatic.

A new experimental library is now included, DTIL, which is MemPtr implemented with many functions coded in pure IL (and ForwardRef'd from the VB source), instead of calling via delegate. This method adds further performance increases.

Also included in the Interop library is the new VirtualDisk class. Built on top of the raw C-based Windows API, this is a completely new .NET-based implementation of all VHD/VHDX functionality, including, creating, mounting and unmounting volumes, as well as providing access to the backing file. There is no demonstration of this feature, yet, but one will be forth-coming.

Several bug fixes, cleaning up of code, and added stability.
