.NET Framework
Microsoft's latest is faster, has high dpi support

The .NET Framework is a set of software tools that provides everything you need to run programs developed using Microsoft's .NET technology. This includes runtime engines, memory management tools, support for ASP.NET applications, and a whole lot more.

Updates to the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) include extended high DPI support, more consistent and reliable touch handling, and transparent child window support.

Changes in ASP.NET 4.6 include authentication updates and support for the super-efficient HTTP/2.

A smarter Garbage Collector should improve memory utilisation and reduce latency, without requiring any code changes.

A more flexible Windows Communication Foundation now supports SSL version TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2, in addition to SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0, when using NetTcp with transport security and client authentication.

The list goes on, with the new RyuJIT JIT compiler, SIMD support, and of course a stack of language extensions and improvements for C# 6, F# 4, and VB 14.

Verdict:

A solid step forward for Microsoft .NET

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.17

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.16.17

• Introducing WhatsApp video calling. With free video calls, you can have face-to-face chats with your friends and family around the world. Data charges may apply. (requires iOS 8+)
• Search for the perfect animated GIF, right from within WhatsApp. Just tap Attach — Photo/Video Library and tap on the GIF search button on the bottom left to get started.
