[links] Explore the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1

Posted 14 February 2014 - 01:21 PM


.NET Framework 4.5.1 RTM => start coding

.NET Framework 4.5.1 Preview

A treasure trove of information is in those links, and hits some of the great highlights of 4.5.1.


Developer Productivity

We heard many requests to make .NET development easier since our last release. We’re happy to report that we delivered a lot of new features to help with that, many of which were built in concert with the Visual Studio Diagnostics team.

Debugger support for X64 edit and continue (EnC)
Debugger support for seeing managed return values
Async-aware debugging in the Call Stack and Tasks windows
Debugger support for analyzing .NET memory dumps (in the Visual Studio Ultimate SKU)
Tools for .NET developers in the Performance and Diagnostics hub
Code Analysis UI improvements
ADO.NET idle connection resiliency

Application Performance

Performance is always an important focus for the .NET team. We added some core features that will help larger scale apps, with a focus on ASP.NET.

ASP.NET App Suspend – responsive shared .NET web hosting
On-demand large object heap compaction
Multi-core JIT for ASP.NET

Continuous Innovation

We’re now delivering software faster. The .NET Framework 4.5.1 was delivered about a year after the .NET Framework 4.5. That’s pretty fast for a mature framework. For even faster releases, we use NuGet.org. You can see that we have released quite a few .NET NuGet Packages available already. It’s not just something that we started recently.

.NET NuGet releases
Better discoverability of Microsoft .NET NuGet packages
Supporting enterprise use of .NET NuGet packages
