Update Your .NET Framework To v4.5.2 To Continue Receving Technical Support And Security Updates


.NET is an integral part of many applications running on Windows and provides common functionality for those applications to run. This download is for people who need .NET to run an application on their computer. For developers, the .NET Framework provides a comprehensive and consistent programming model for building applications that have visually stunning user experiences and seamless and secure communication.

Microsoft today recommended their customers to update to .NET 4.5.2 for greater stability, reliability, security and performance and revealed that they will stop supporting all older .Net frameworks.

We will continue to fully support .NET 4, .NET 4.5, .NET 4.5.1, and .NET 4.5.2 until January 12, 2016, this includes security updates as well as non-security technical support and hotfixes. Beginning January 12, 2016 only .NET Framework 4.5.2 will continue receiving technical support and security updates. There is no change to the support timelines for any other .NET Framework version, including .NET 3.5 SP1, which will continue to be supported for the duration of the operating system lifecycle.

We will continue to focus on .NET and as we outlined at both TechEd NA and Build earlier in 2014, we are working on a significant set of technologies, features and scenarios that will be part of .NET vNext, our next major release of the .NET Framework coming in 2015.

    “significant set of technologies, features and scenarios that will be part of .NET vNext,”

    AWESOME, hopefully .Net 5.0 will repair the damage done by the Metro fiasco!

      The only damage I’m seeing is the obvious brain damage your exhibiting. Can’t believe this is down to Microsoft though.

        that’s the best yeah got, can’t figure out a way to make it about apple?
        metrotards are gonna be future MS haters!

    • reKitab

      They’re talking about .NET 4.5.2 here, and you’re putting the Cart before the Horse, imho!

        read the article:
        MS quote
        “we are working on a significant set of technologies, features and scenarios that will be part of .NET vNext, our next major release of the .NET Framework coming in 2015″ you think there taking 4.5.3?
        cling to metro all you want, but get ready to be labeled as change hater,lmfoa, metrotards are in for a rude awakening

        • reKitab

          I give up, and you can “lmfoa” all you want:)

          • dave

            great, then STFU, at least you didn’t bring up how much you worship your Lumia model xxx0, or what a genius device your gorgeous Surface tablet is. can’t help wondering why you posted here at all, not looking to express an opinion of .Net, just out for a troll?

    definitely in the right direction .
    are those stickied f1-12 right click desktop popup menus ? with a winkey popup to rule them all ?
    chrome , zoomablecanvas , nodeXL , gpu/fpga graph traversal of visual and logical trees

    re:nuget package restore , nothing like requiring a 3rd party web site in order to compile your code .
    revision dependencies are bad enough , especially with disappearing web pages . including entire microsoft domains.
    requiring online source control and resource linkage in the cloud is a trap .
    clickonce fails to establish a trust relationship , activation servers disappear , and bumblehive should be hosting archive.org instead of emails
