I've seen in the roadmap that you are planning to use DotNetOpenAuth. Whils I fully understand your reasons I would like to raise a point for your consideration.

I've recently worked with OAuth authentication in the WebMatrix.Security from the version 2 Beta and I have to admit it feels much more developer friendly. It's trivial to understand and extend. Why you decided to abandon the good code?

We're using DNOA as our underlying implementation of how we do OAuth and OpenID. It has been around for a long time, written by a great developer and is very well proven. That is why we picked it.

We actually contributed our layer on top of it (to make it easier to use, as you noticed) to Outercurve. :) You should be happy with the results.

Has any timeframe been shared for the release of this functionality in the Web API?

We don’t have any product plans to share, but we do plan on providing sample code by the time we ship that shows how you can do OAuth with ASP.NET Web API using DotNetOpenAuth.

Great, that's just what I was hoping for. Thanks!
