So it’s been more than a year now that the .Net 4.5 framework is out. The web has a lot to tell you about this, but in a scattered form. That is why we are making things easier here by bringing all the .Net 4.5 facts, enhancements and improvements right at one spot. This new framework brings along an array of changes; from improved background garbage collection to arrays extension 2 GB. .Net 4.5 has many useful capabilities to explore and implement.
Take a sneak peek into its core new features and improvements:
• No Limitation on Arrays
With .Net 4.5 there is no limitation on arrays as these can now extend up to 2 GB on 64-bit platforms. All thanks to its configuration attribute in the run-time schema that helps in using arrays larger than 2 GB on 64-bit applications. Now it’s easy to take full advantage of the available memory while working with huge arrays.
• Background Garbage Collection is Automatically Enabled
Until now it was common to face those frequent garbage collections with previous .Net frameworks, which used to block all the threads before the final collection took place. But, .Net 4.5 is different; here background garbage collection is automatically enabled with enhanced scalability. The best thing is, there is no need to make changes in the code when you are using .Net 4.5.
• Supports Timeouts in Regular Expression Evaluations
There is no need to generate your own timeout mechanisms by using complex workarounds as .Net 4.5 supports timeouts in regular expression evaluations. In this way this framework provides you an easy way to establish a timeout, when you come across a very complex regular expression.
• Excellent Computing of Hash Codes
This framework has the capability and can excellently compute the hash codes for strings on a per application domain basis.
• Improved Managed Extensibility Framework
It features improved managed extensibility framework, asynchronous file operations, tools, parallel computing, web, networking, WPF, WCF and a range of other .Net properties for better approach and programming.
Thus, if you are still thinking about implementing the .Net 4.5 framework, then the time has already arrived to upgrade yourself to this feature-rich version of .Net and make some difference.
