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. Jack
