I have just released my third https://ChannelAdam.com open source library - now available at https://channeladamwcf.codeplex.com and NuGet.org.
The ChannelAdam WCF Library is designed to make your life as a developer easier when consuming WCF services, by abstracting away the complexities of service channel state transitions and the odd behaviour of the Microsoft WCF libraries that do not comply with even their own design guidelines.
In doing this, the ChannelAdam ServiceConsumer once and for all prevents memory and connection leaks, gives developers the ability to plug in their own strategies for handling different situations (such as logging exceptions), and provides a built-in mechanism to retry service operation calls when transient faults occur.
Available on NuGet - https://www.nuget.org/packages/ChannelAdam.Wcf
