.NET Framework 4 Updated ‘KB2468871’ Now Available for Download – 6 New Features and 35 Fixes

Microsoft is offering .NET Framework 4 KB2468871 designed to introduce no less than six new features and provide fixes for no less than 35 issues.

KB2468871 offered to customers running the 32-bit flavors of supported Windows releases, including Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

“The .NET Framework 4 update provides cumulative roll-up updates for customer reported issues found after the release of the .NET Framework 4,” the software giant revealed.

Essentially, KB2468871 is described as a General Distribution Release (GDR) update for.NET Framework 4.

Microsoft initially released .NET Framework 4 back in April 2010, concomitantly with the RTM Build of Visual Studio 2010.

The new features that the refresh introduces are also detailed there, but I also included them below for your convenience:

  1. This update rollup enables ASP.NET to support multiple IIS configuration systems in a design mode. Therefore, Visual Studio Web Designer supports IIS Express. Additionally, Visual Studio Web Designer lets different Visual Studio Solution projects target different versions of IIS.
  2. When a shadow cache assembly that is turned into a symbolic link to the same file is validated, the size of the assembly is not checked. Therefore, ASP.NET uses Optimization for Shared Web Hosting.
  3. New syntax lets you define a TextBox control that is HTML5 compatible. For example, the following code defines a TextBox control that is HTML5 compatible: <asp:TextBox runat="server" type="some-HTML5-type" />
  4. A new switch is added for the Visual Basic compiler that allows for server control output of HTML5-friendly elements. For example: <asp:TextBox runat="server" type="some-HTML5-type" />
