In the past I have maintained some blogs posts about version histories of the CLR 2.0 and CLR 4.0. People seem to have found those useful over the years but they have become quite tough to maintain. With that in mind, I’m drawing a line under those old posts for now and making a bit of a fresh start here, capturing some of the newer key versions of the CLR 4.x family that have shipped. I’ll try to update over time.
Version number indicated refers to CLR.DLL. If there are patches of significant interest relating to other files I’ll note that in the ‘File’ column.
