.NET 4.5: BCL Team - Improvements and Evolution
It's been about two years since we last had the chance to discuss changes, improvements and evolution in .NET's base class library (BCL) with some of the folks who write and maintain it. The next version of the BCL will ship as part of .NET 4.5. What's new? What did they focus on for the next release? What's next? Here we meet Matt Ellis, Immo Landwerh, Weitao Su, Nicholas Blumhardt, Alok Shriram, Kevin Ransom, Brian Grunkemeyer, Greg Paperin and Daniel Plaisted.
Specific topics covered: Async across the framework, read-only collections, ETW APIs, Reflection Context, MEF, WeakReference<T> and more.
Tune in. Meet the BCL 4.5 team.
