FSharpx 1.8 removes support for Freebase, CSV, JSON and XML document type providers

Filed under: F# — Steffen Forkmann at 18:25 Uhr

There was a lot of confusion about the document type providers in the last couple of months. The reason was Tomas Petricek and Co. worked on an improved version in the FSharp.Data project and most people lost track which feature was in which project.

In order to make things clearer I removed the Freebase, CSV, JSON and XML type providers from the fsharpx project. From now on they are only in the FSharp.Data project (on github and nuget).

I hope this doesn’t make things worse and I apologize for the confusion. On the bright side you now get a couple of new features and a really cool documentation.

You can read more about this on Tomas’s blog.
