Application performance is improved for several add-on functionalities to the developers. This modification in application performance will also increase the user experience in designing and developing. Some of those add-on functionalities are:

  • Multi Core JIT improvements
  • ASP.NET application suspension
  • On demand large heap object
  • Object heap compaction
  • Consistent performance

Continuous Innovation

Continuous innovation is supported by updating in the .NET Framework, JIT compiler, structure and many more services, that professional developers really require, whenever they talk about any modifications in the Microsoft .NET Framework. This continuous innovation is followed by these guidelines in .NET4.5:
