What’s new in .NET Framework 4.5? [poster]
.NET Framework 4.5 had its CTP released in Build, and RTM is coming next year. The key improvement areas are asynchronous programming, performance and support for Windows 8/WinRT â€“ but worry not, itâ€™s not all about those new thingies.
Instead of just listing it all out, hereâ€™s a poster you can hang on your wall and explore. The ideal print size is a landscape A3. If you want it all in writing, follow the links at the end of this post. Click on the image for a larger version.
[UPDATE 2011-11-16: I have changed the poster to include changes in F# 3.0.]
[UPDATE 2012-03-07: The poster has been updated for .NET 4.5 Beta release. Also, the poster is being delivered to TechDays Finland 2012 participants - the new updated version is equal to the one available in print.]

If you prefer to have the poster in Finnish, we have published it on the ITpro.fi Software development expert group site.
Any feedback is naturally welcome, and Iâ€™ll make a reasonable effort to fix any errors. Enjoy!
