.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

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
