    Announcing .NET Framework 4.6


    We're excited to announce the RTM releases of .NET Framework 4.6 and Visual Studio 2015 today. You can read about the new features or leave that for later and try them out now. The quickest way to get started is to install the free Visual Studio 2015 Community version.

    With the .NET Framework 4.6, you'll enjoy better performance with the new 64-bit "RyuJIT" JIT and high DPI support for WPF and Windows Forms. ASP.NET provides HTTP/2 support when running on Windows 10 and has more async task-returning APIs. There are also major updates in Visual Studio 2015 for .NET developers, many of which are built on top of the new Roslyn compiler framework. The .NET languages -- C# 6, F# 4, VB 14 -- have been updated, too.

    We're also announcing updates to .NET Core and ASP.NET 5, both recently released as beta 5 and included in Visual Studio 2015. The .NET tools for Windows 10 UWP app development, including .NET Native, will be shipping shortly, on 7/29. We will have a lot to share about .NET UWP apps and the .NET Native technology at that time.

    You can download and try out the releases now:


    As a team, we're really excited to share everything we've been working on:


    You can check out the earlier RC and Preview releases to see how the release has developed over the last year. In fact, it's only been 14 months since we released the .NET Framework 4.5.2.

    .NET Framework 4.6

    There are many great features in the .NET Framework 4.6. Some of these features, like RyuJIT and the latest GC updates, can provide improvements by just installing the .NET Framework 4.6. Give it a try!

    You can learn more about the release by looking at What's New in the .NET Framework, the .NET Framework 4.6 release changelist and an .NET Framework API diff between the .NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5.2 releases. Check out the ASP.NET Team post to learn more about ASP.NET updates.

    The .NET Framework 4.6 is part of Windows 10 and can be installed on Windows 7 and Windows 8. You can target the .NET Framework 4.6 in Visual Studio 2012 or later, by installing the the .NET Framework 4.6 Targeting Pack. It comes with Visual Studio 2015...

    As a regular, average, user can I download and install .NET Framework 4.6 or is this something for developers only?

    Thank you


    EDIT:

    I've tried to install it - out of curiosity - on build 10240 and this is what I got :

    Hello Joanne,

    .NET Framework 4.6 is already a part of Windows 10, but yes you could download and install it as an end user on Windows 7 and 8.

    This should be in the Windows 8 section. Why direct to something that we already have?

    I wouldn't of known it was available unless I saw it in this post though, and while I do have Windows 7 & 8 and do use them, actually I'm posting using 7 right now, but I don't visit those forums that often. I'm not trying to make excuses, just saying a maybe.
