Changes from Framework 2.0.50727.42 to Framework 2.0.50727.1378

In my last post I wrote about a problem when compiling code for Framework 2.0 in a computer with Visual Studio 2008 installed.

Just to resume, the problem is that after you install Visual Studio 2008 beta 2, your assemblies are updated from version 2.0.50727.42 to 2.0.50727.1378. This version introduces several changes in classes, if you make use of them, you can end up with code wrote for Framework 2.0 that fails during execution time on computers not having this version of the assemblies. Which makes lot of sense, but since you target Framework 2.0 you probably don’t expect to deal with the minor versions.

Anyway, what I wanted to write today is that Scott Hanselman wrote a very interesting article about all the changes introduced from those two versions, you can find it here.
