S. Somasegar discusses several new features and improved functionality available in the .NET 4.5 Developer Preview. Performance among other things has seen a significant boost in .NET 4.5.
I'd like to learn more about no longer needing to write our own interop code. I'm assuming that's only good for stuff in the WinRT API, but will definitely be much cleaner than coding directly against the Win32 API.
Yeah, likewise. It would be pretty awesome if you could just specify a few configuration settings and you could auto-generate interop assemblies for C-export libraries!
I really like Interop productivity gain. When I heard Interop for the first time, it appeared to be a tough thing. Then, i realized that it was just some wrapper around the COM API. Automating this must be simple enough.
