Implicit line continuations in Framework 4.0 misleading[edit]

Implicit line continuations were added for Visual Basic in Visual Studio 2010, but the developer can still target the earlier frameworks. Although Visual Studio 2010 is listed as the dev tool for .NET 4.0, implicit line continuation is a feature of the IDE (Visual Studio 2010 itself, not the framework targeted by the application). So to say .NET Framework 4.0 adds support for line continuations is not accurate. Visual Studio 2010 adds that feature, but the source can be compiled against any of the frameworks and still work fine. 71.236.207.101 (talk) 00:09, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

ISO dates[edit]

Please revise the tables and references to use the more logical ISO 8601 dates (e.g., 2013-03-06), which the MoS specifically allows, especially since this article is oriented toward a technical audience. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.69.160.1 (talk) 15:21, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Not done: Hello. The table is already using ISO 8601 dates. The citation style, however, may not change. According to the Manual of Style (WP:DATESRET) date style should not change once it is established unless there is a reason based on strong national ties. Currently, the citations chiefly use dmy as their date style. It should not change.
The technical nature of this article does not change that rule. In fact, as I have experienced, the date style is just a matter of personal preference and nothing more.

Windows 8 .NET (missing version)[edit]

From List of features removed in Windows_8: ".NET Framework 3.5 is no longer included by default. Installing it requires an Internet connection, although Microsoft has published a workaround that enables users to install it from Windows installation disc." (and 1.1 no longer supported). This implies it matters. That is, 4+ is not (fully) compatible(?). I vaguely remember seeing before that programs need a specific version. Is that usually not the case. If it is then it should be in the article and maybe also here that versions are no longer supported or shipped with? Maybe such info should be in List_of_.NET_Framework_versions or the main .NET article. comp.arch (talk) 12:42, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Add product version[edit]

It would be helpful to add the Product Version to the table, similar to the last column ("Version") of the table shown here: What .NET Framework version numbers go with what service pack — Preceding unsigned comment added by Opus4210 (talk • contribs) 19:41, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Compatibility[edit]

This is what I came looking for in the first place. And it was not in the article so I added it. No it is not in the main article. And I think that it is pretty obvious that an article on previous versions would consider compatibility. And the change with 4.0 was a surprise. So feel free to improve or, if necessary, correct. But do not just delete. (I rarely edit on Wikipedia these days, not worth the bother of dealing with the reverters.) Tuntable (talk) 02:12, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

This article is called ".NET Framework version history" and anything not related to it must stay out of it.
And FYI, you did not adhere to existing writing style. This is enough to warrant a revert. And you seem to think edit warring is the best way to resolve your dispute. No surprise you find editing Wikipedia unpleasant. Fleet Command (talk) 15:49, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Operating system support[edit]

The page has no listing of which operating system versions are supported for each version of the .Net Framework. I added this to information to the table, but it was reverted, as the table now contains too much information. I agree; but how should this information be added? Perhaps a paragraph should be added at the bottom of each section listing. But I feel that this information would be better served in table format. In that case, what should the section be titled? 'Supported Operating Systems'? Where should it be located? What columns should it contain? Or perhaps we should replace the 'included in' columns of the existing table. 'Included in' is interesting, but not relevant, where as 'supported by' is relevant. As a programmer, this would be some of the most valuable information on this page; but it is missing.

Hello, Shane32Wiki
I am glad we agree on the information overload point of Template:.NET Framework version history. I have a 1080p monitor and the table was still choking on it.
As to where to present this information, .NET Framework version history (the article associated with this talk page) is the best place. There is individual sections for each version of .NET Framework that can accommodate this information, along with a source for each.
