.net 4 -> .net standard

10/8/2021 1:20 PM

Has anyone received any response from wout regarding some upgrade from .net version to .net standard? We're moving to .net 5 so the .net 4 version doesn't work anymore. .net standard would be an option, but it's unclear what its capabilities are.

Have emailed wout, but haven't heard anything.

I'll start on .NET 5 in November, I can't give you a release date though.

The current .NET Standard version has roughly the same functionality as the 4.0 version, except there is no GDI+ or WPF rendering, only software rendering, which is considerably slower obviously (probably a factor 5-10 slower).

Hi Wout,

Do you expect the .NET 5 version to be a separate license or just an upgrade to the existing 4.0 version?
