.NET MF 4.3 support

description

Support for 4.3 seems like a must have. Netduino already has is, and the way I see it is Gadgeteer vs Netduino.

Need some signs that it's still an active project...

Of course it is active but this is a large project that needs plenty of planning and work.

Curious, why do you need 4.3? This will help us in understanding and prioritizing tasks.

Well I would actually be happy if there were support for vs2012. One of the components in vs2010 wont install on windows 8 so something is crippled just don't know what.
I would also rather not install vs2010 just because I use fez hydra. I mean I develope everything else in vs2012.
vs2010 just isn't for windows 8.
I would hate to swap my embedded platform again, but if we wont get support for vs2012. Then well I just have to go with Netduino.
I'm quite disappointed to see that I spent quite a big money for all this fez hydra stuff and yet I can't use vs2012.
Come on at least release some betas or something that we can see that this is actively developed.
Also netmf 4.3 does have some fixes.
FYI chipkit already lost me as a customer.

FYI, the #1 priority for ANY software that integrates with Visual Studio is to get working with the latest toolset to keep up. The fact that we're even having to ask you for this to get it on the roadmap is just plain ridiculous, and I'm sorry to say but whoever is managing this project should be ashamed.

Hi all,

Thanks for the feedback, which I appreciate you taking the time to communicate.

We are very close to a new release which will include support for both VS 2012 (when using NETMF SDK v4.3 installer - but supporting 4.2 and 4.1 too) and VS 2010 (when using NETMF SDK v4.2 installer - supporting 4.1 still). The express versions for 2012 and 2010 will both be supported. As you might imagine, the testing matrix for this gets big, considering all the OS versions too, so it takes some time. We've also implemented a new application wizard to help navigate this complex set of possible prerequisites (which is potentially different for each mainboard).

In short, please rest assured Gadgeteer IS an active project that many people here at Microsoft care about, and we are sorry for the delay which I do agree falls short of expectations.

That's great news.
I'm looking forward.
