.NET 4 support

As previously announced, starting January 12, 2016 Microsoft will no longer provide security updates, technical support or hotfixes for .NET 4, 4.5, and 4.5.1 frameworks. All other framework versions, including 3.5, 4.5.2, 4.6 and 4.6.1, will be supported for the duration of their established lifecycle. The decision to end support for these versions will allow us to invest more resources towards improvements of the .NET Framework.

makes me wonder who here is using strictly 4.0, still one year after it's no longer supported. ;) It would make my life easier to drop .NET 4 support and invest my resources to moving forward faster. 4.5.2+ would still be supported, of course.

I am still using 4.0 due to the difficulty upgrading 500+ computers and a painful amount of customers still on XP. The downside of desktop software.
That being said the current code is stable and fast in our experience so would be happy to stay on the current version until we are ready to upgrade .net version.

Hi Gerdus


The question is... should "we" be affected by "your" difficulties upgrading 500 pcs.  I have the same problem, it is even thousands and all running on different locations, but we try to manage.  (Failing miserably, but that is another story)

I agree with your opinion that you can stay on current implementation and not migrate away to all the new features.  If it works, it works, no?


Besides new features and code clean ups... what with bugfixes though.  I don't think we can keep on expecting from Jiri to backport all fixes to all version all the time.  

I rather see Jiri working on the new event system then to keep 4.0 code running.


kind regards

OK, there doesn't seem to be any more discussion around this. And
because, as stated before, MS is not going to support 4.0 (and also 4.7
is now out for all systems), the minimum supported version in next major
version will be 4.5.2. If somebody wants the 4.0 the previous versions
are always available.

Any questions?
