Hello Prism Team,

I've been diving into Prism for the past couple months, and I have to say I'm very very very impressed with what I've seen.  Much has transpired since version 2 when I first reviewed the codebase.

Since you are currently looking into version 4.1, I wanted to throw out a request for consideration, namely breaking out functionality in the Prism assembly that can be used in other hosted application contexts (such as WCF-Hosted or Windows Services Applications).

Namely, I'm wondering if you could create a "Prism.Core" that would host all the non-WPF-specific functionality, such as:

  • Events
  • Modularity
  • Logging
  • Other?

You have a lot of really great stuff going on in these namespaces.  I'd like to be able to leverage this functionality in other application contexts without having to reference WPF-specific libraries.

Thank you for any consideration,

Thanks, for your suggestion. I believe you could create a work item proposing this changes in the issue tracker so that the Prism team considers it for a future release.
