What’s new in .NET 4.0? (in Finnish)

Just a quick heads-up for my countrymen reading this: I have written and published an 18-page white paper on “What’s new in .NET 4.0” (including changes in C# 4.0 and Visual Basic 2010). Unfortunately for the international audience, the article is written in Finnish. Available on the ITpro.fi web site. Enjoy!

    Great sum up Jouni. Your documentation rocks, as always. ;)

    Nice article! Microsoft has said that installing .NET 4.0 runtime should also speed up applications made for older .NET versions due to optimizations in parallel processing etc. Any specifics on that?

    I don't think too much has been published apart from the two main topics: parallelism improvements (threadpool optimization, lightweight synchronization primitives etc.) and garbage collection improvements.

    I think we'll hear more later on, though. Microsoft isn't exactly thrilled about gloating on beta perf, particularly with the Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 swimming so deep in complaints. But I certainly look forward to the RC phase!
