More than a month has passed since the last patch release of Autofac 2.4, and enough has changed in trunk to warrant a new one. You can download Autofac 2.4.5 from the project site, or preferably, update your NuGet packages within Visual Studio.
In this release you’ll find:
Several bug fixes and improved exception messages
The awkward but very useful
IContainerAwareComponentintroduced in 2.4 has been deprecated and morphed into a much friendlier and more useful Startable implementation
Autofac now consistently throws
DependencyResolutionException(or a subclass) whenever fatal errors occur during composition
