.NET 4.0 server. When?
edited September 2010
When will be server for .NET 4.0?
We still have a major roadblock to solve but the next version will have DotNet 4 support.
Before anyone asks: Photon will continue to run on DotNet 3.5 as well but the DotNet 4 runtime increases the performance.
We have no arrival time at the moment. It should be soon.
glad to hear it will continue to support .net 3.5 at least till the day when MS fixes the .net 4 installer to not brick the older ones and follow their specs for how .net is meant to work (independent between assembly versions
So far I have seen no issues forcing the runtime to 4.0. I used the following PhotonSocketServer.exe.config file as I was unsure around the potential COM call (ie. force it to use the 2.0 COM policy).
<supportedRuntime version="v4.0" />
I'm compiling my application dll in .Net 4.0 and debugging with Visual Studio 2010 without any issues, at any rate its an option until official support is offered.
Adding PhotonSocketServer.exe.config file as described above allow to use Applications from Net 4.0 assemblies (without it server throw exception when try to load assembly). Good solution for me. Thanks.
