Note: There is a successor of AsyncWcfLib:

AsyncWcfLib is a software library for distributed computing based on Microsoft WCF.
AsyncWcfLib is a lightweight message bus bridging Windows and Linux by using the .NET Framework or Mono.
It supports callback based asynchrony as well as the new async-await pattern available in .NET 4.5.

AsyncWcfLib supports threadsafety through an actor based programming model.
Actors are loosly coupled system units interacting by passing messages.
Message objects are passed inside a process between actors running on different threads.
Also, messages may be passed between actors running on different processes, hosts and operating systems.

The library is designed for configuration free, asynchronous messaging.
A router application is included. It discovers actors by their name on any linked host, even
when host name resolution is not possible because of routing- or operating system limitations.
