Among the new features in the runtime and IDE, the .NET Framework networking team has been busy adding new functionality. The core networking enhancements are:
- International Resource Identifier support for URIs – Finally URIs with international characters in the hostname or path are easily created and parsed with managed code. No more ASCII-only URLs.
- Socket Performance Improvements – In a joint effort between the System.Net and CLR team, socket throughput has increased by up to 70%
- Easily create Peer to Peer applications in managed code with the new System.Net.PeerToPeer namespace: The System.Net.PeerToPeer namespace is built on the Windows Vista P2P platform.
