Its been nearly a month since I released PerfMatters.Flush on NuGet. The library has been getting people talking about performance and thinking how to improve their web applications.
Unfortunately for me, I regretted releasing the library almost instantly, or at least as soon as Mike O’Brien suggested a much better name for it on Twitter:

For the uninitiated, a courtesy flush refers to the first, early flush you do in the restroom to avoid stinking the place up.
My library is basically the same thing, except, in a much more hygienic environment. Flushing your HTTP response early also provides everyone a benefit.
All that to say I’ve decided to rename PerfMatters.Flush to CourtesyFlush. I’ve “redirected” the old package to use the new one, so you don’t need to worry if you were using the old library. In addition, I’ve also added support for .NET 4.0 in this release.
