.net 4.6? when/what to expect RRS feed

  • Question

  • I couldnt find online much about official release date of .net 4.6 therefore I thought I would ask you guys to fill me in with latest news & rumors :) My recent google researches ended up in installing preview version but that is just the preview. Any latest info about when to expect c# 6.0, .net 4.6 (or is it gonna be called .net 5?6?)

  • Thanks Barry I get you concerns however it would be nice to know at least in which month the developers shall expect new visual studio and the new .net framework.. I would like to avoid buying all equipment and prepairing all workplaces for vs13 if vs15 is gonna come out in 2-3 months.. I could wait till spring 15 but not till fall 15. I hope you get my point. Few small details would be nice. :)
