Release Notes

As of version 1.3.1 we have switched over to using Semantic versioning. See

This change will enable us to do more frequent releases as well as semantically represent the changes from version to version in the version number. Per the spec, this release includes only bug fixes and no API changes, either breaking or extension.


  • Switching to Semantic Versioning.
  • Added some exception handling for design time bootstrapper operations.
  • Added a custom converter to the MessageBinder so that we can handle converting to DateTime from string.

Awesome framework, made my life so much easier.

Awesome framework. My first WPF project was a touch-based point-of-sale system, and in learning WPF I quickly realized how fugly the code gets without some type of MVVM framework. Using Caliburn.Micro, I was able to quickly learn WPF and complete the project in record time with wonderfly-clean code.

The Caliburn.Micro framework has made developing in WPF a treat. Still working though the learning curves but so far I have nothing bad to say about it. Great work!

This superbly crafted framework is really well desgined and beautiful. A lot of attention has been payed to the details. When you use all its powerfull features and concepts, it reduces boilerplate code to the barest minimum. All XAML-stacks are supported (WinRT, WP7, Silverlight, WPF). Great for small and big applications. I love how qickly I get things done. The best MVVM-Framework on the market

If I could marry an MVVM framework, Caliburn.Micro would be "the one!" - :D

Great framework!

I can't believe how much this framework has revolutionized my way of thinking about MVVM. It's cut out so much of the day-to-day annoyances and made the *.xaml so much cleaner for the UI designers.

I couldn't wrap my ahead around MVVM on WP7 until i switched to this framework. The implementation is amazingly simple and robust. Thanks for making this available on Codeplex!

By far the best MVVM framework,. Rob keeps on delivering. If you are even a bit serious about developing on XAML based languages, Caliburn is the way to go. I have delivered multiple WPF/Silverlight projects and I couldn't have been this successful without CM. Brilijant...

Extremely useful for MVVM development in Windows Phone and WPF.
