ACTIVESOCKET 4.1 RELEASE NOTES

Release date: August 22 2008


INTRODUCTION

ActiveSocket 4.1 is the newest version of the ActiveSocket Network Communication Toolkit. The mission of the product is to provide a collection of powerful network communication tools for a variety of Windows development platforms.


WHAT'S NEW IN ACTIVESOCKET 4.1

ActiveSocket 4.1 adds .NET sample projects created with Visual Studio 2005. The .NET samples require Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. You must install .NET Framework 2.0, or .NET Framework 3.0 or 3.5, which both include .NET Framework 2.0, in order to run the .NET samples.

In previous versions of ActiveSocket, the .NET samples were created in Visual Studio 2002.

There are no incremental bug fixes or new features in this release other than ActiveSocket 4 .0, so it is not necessary to upgrade if you do not intend to use the .NET samples
