Our subscribers are getting access to all prior versions: .NET 4.5, 4.0, 3.5, 2.0, and 1.0.  

So when you find that you need DTOs, SOAP, Dynamic Linq or any other feature not present in the latest release you can easily reference these in the 4.0 or older version.  The patterns in all prior versions are still 'valid', especially because in the Enterprise environment developers are dealing with legacy apps that need support and maintenance for a long time to come.

I think there are more differences between v40 and v45, all the way from the architecture to implemented patterns and coding best practices

The Design Pattern Framework 4.5 seems simpler, cleaner, but at the same time lacks samples that v4 had, such as DTOs in BL, Security Tokens, Adapter Pattern in DL, General Log functionality, Encryption, Image services, Hosting layer, and more

With the inclusion of the Web Api, and removing WCF the developers decided to go for simplistic sample vs detail sample. That and the fact that the Web Api is new and certain things are not well defined yet. 

So I am continuously going back to v4 for some references not existing in v45

I got rid of the Take helper method and just applied the parameters I needed per method. Example: object[] parms = { "@memberId", smid }; return DbAdapterHRMS.ReadFromStoredProcedure(proc, Make, parms); Thanks Dennis

Hello Panagiotis:

Thank you for your detailed feedback. Much appreciated. It will help us in making the right decisions for the upcoming releases. 

As far as WCF vs Web API, I would like to point out this article. It summarizes the issues you mentioned in a very balanced manner. Clearly, the industry is highly dynamic and very much in flux right now. Just look at Silverlight which has completely fallen off the map in the last year or so. 

Anyhow, again thanks for your feedback.
