Framework 4.6: Why is the XML documentation missing important types? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Several of the .XML documentation files in:

    %programfiles(x86)%\reference assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.6

    notably, mscorlib.xml, System.Core.xml and System.XML.xml, are missing important types and members. For instance. the System.String type is completely missing from mscorlib.xml.

    mscorlib.xml has shrunk 20% over the mscorlib.xml in the Framework 4.5.2 directory and is missing 1.7MB worth of data.

    I wondered for a while if the Framework 4.6 documentation files are intended to be additive over the documentation files in the previous framework folders. But this doesn't make sense because they are too big for that, and it only applies to a handful of XML files.

    I need to get this resolved in order to release LINQPad 5.

    Many thanks
