|The .NET Framework 4.5 Improves Performance|
|Friday, 23 November 2012|
The .NET Framework 4.5 (.NET 4.5) is generally available and included in Visual Studio 2012, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012. The Framework, which consists of a run-time environment and class libraries for developing managed application code, has been upgraded to enable the implementation of highly responsive applications and brings other performance improvements that could reduce application load time and memory usage. Windows Store applications (which run on Windows 8 and Windows RT) can use a subset of .NET 4.5. The upgrade is mostly backward compatible with .NET 4, but existing code may need modifications to use the new version.
