  • TaskEx is a class that exists only in the CTP, since there was no way to add extra methods to the existing Task class in the Framework (as the CTP is implemented using a separate assembly).

    It will not exist in the final, RTM version of the framework.  The methods defined on TaskEx will be migrated to Task.

  • There is no official release date (yet).  The Beta for .NET 4.5 and VS was released today: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/11/en-us/downloads
