We have shipped a preview of Unity 3.5 nuget packages via myget. With this release, our primary goal is to simplify cross-platform development of apps and services. The preview includes the following:
Note, that the Registration by convention feature needed to be pulled out in a separate dll to provide platform-specific implementations.

How to get involved?
1) Try it, discuss it, provide us your feedback

2) Spread the news and help amplify the message
3) Improve Unity by sending a pull request

If any one is interested in support for Windows Phone 8.1, we now have a pre-release available:

If I'll prepare working port to Silverlight 5/PCL with Silverlight 5 support, is it possible, that it will be merged or it won't be even reviewed?
Jun 4 at 12:31 AM
It's definitely possible. I'll check with our team about the impact it would have on our test surface.
You'll also need to sign a CLA if you haven't done so already.

We're interested in this pull request. We'd really like it if it included unit tests for the platform. We suspect that will take some platform specific code.

I'm waiting for my employer to sign CLA (I hope that it will be done today). Besides of this I want to do a little clean up of my work.
Now I have working PCL Unity assembly with Silverlight 5 support and separate Silverlight 5 versions of Unity.Interceptors and Unity.RegistrationByConvention. Also I created Silverlight test assembly where I added all appropriate tests. For restoring Silverlight 5 support I've taken some sources from Unity 2.1 Silverlight version.
I still have some questions about some decisions for SL compatibility. What will be better - discuss them in this thread or create new thread for it?

I would say start a new thread dedicated to Silverlight.

Are there plans on making Unity.Interception a PCL? It would be nice to hear the plans on this assembly. Thank you!

No, I don't believe there are any plans right now; some of the interception approaches (e.g. MarshalByRefObject) are not supported in PCL.

Randy is correct, Unity.Interception as a PCL is not currently on our roadmap.

I have messing with this pre release of Unity and I have had many blockers. One of them is the fact I need to have my Views and ViewModels all in the same dll.

I have the need to have multiple dlls and and each of them need to have their own set of Views and VIewModels. Is there a way to do this currently?

If yes can you provide some guidance in how to do so? I am keen to get this to work.

Many thanks

Can you explain specifically what is blocking you?
