Hello Mehmet: 

There are quite a few differences between 4.0 and 4.5. First of all, our product page at www.dofactory.com/framework/framework.aspx explains what is in 4.5.  

If you are an existing user then you also received an email with the upgrade details. Here is a summary of what was in that email:  

 -  Optimized for VS 2012 / .NET 4.5

 -  ASP.NET MVC 4 with Razor, Unit Testing,Mocking, Dependency Injection, more..

 -  New SimpleMembership

 -  CQRS and Active Record Patterns

 -  Repository and Unit of Work Patterns

 -  REST Patterns and Practices (with Web API)

 -  Full OAuth implementation: Connect withFacebook!

 -  Partial SPA (Single Page Application)

 -  Convention over Configuration

And here are the highlights

 -  Spark: Our new pattern-based rapid application development (RAD) platform

 -  Art Shop: A real-world, online store built with MVC and Spark

Hope this helps.
