The long path wrapper provides functionality to make it easier to work with paths that are longer than the current 259 character limit of the System.IO namespace. Using the long path classes, projects can now use paths up to 32,000 characters.
LongPath.zip contains two solutions: the LongPathBrowser and the Microsoft.Experimental.IO namespace that contains the libraries for working with long paths. Note that this namespace may change in future releases to match the pattern of other projects on this site.
Documentation for the Long Path release can be found under the documentation tab or on this documentation page
