While it is in the old way it is still accessible and will always be via the underlying IObjectScope. You can create a partial class to your context class and add this method there:
This will expose the IObjectScope as a property on the context and you will be able to take advantage of our Lifecycle events as Henrik already mentioned.
Hope that helps.
