What’s new in .NET 4.5.2?

With all the news and announcements about Roslyn, ASP.NET vNext, Entity Framework 7 and so on, you would almost forget that there is still a .NET framework behind the scenes. A few weeks ago, Microsoft released .NET version 4.5.2, a release that not only offers some nice reliability and performance improvements but even introduces some new features.

Here are some interesting links in case you missed the news:

I’m especially happy with the announced performance improvements to the Distributed Transaction Coordinator(DTC):

[The] distributed transactions enhancement enables promotion of local transactions to Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) transactions without the use of another application domain or unmanaged code. This has a significant positive impact on the performance of distributed transactions.
