GHI NETMF v4.2 and .NET Gadgeteer Package: still in RC?

Hi all!

I have noticed that, on, the GHI NETMF v4.2 and .NET Gadgeteer Package is now dated Sep. 14, 2012. However, the link refers to the Aug. 24 RC2 version. Why?

The GHI SDKs have now been split into separate 4.2 and 4.1 installs. The 4.2 version is still from August 24.

So is the 4.2 still the RC2, while the 4.1 is the “stable” version?


I believe that is correct. 4.2 is still beta.

Thank you, now it’s clear.

But I think that the support page is a bit confusing, as long as the dates that you see on the page don’t correspond to actual release files.

See this

We will add “beta” to the link. We agree this is a bit confusing but we couldn’t find a better way. Hopefully we can have all cleared up very soon.

Perfect, I thinkg that adding “beta” to the link is enough :slight_smile:

Hi , i am following the intallations steps by simon monk at book “getting started with .net gadgeteer” , but some links don’t exists , if you have some link where to locate the right microframework setups, by example:

Microsoft .NET Micro Framework 4.1 SDK" is the same? "MicroFrameworkSDK_NETMF42_QFE22

.NET Gadgeteer Package

Thank you.

@ Benja - In the support section (see the menu at the top of this page) you will find the links to the firmware etc. under the Micro framework section.

Here is the direct link

Check the documentation section under the support menu for the latest information on installing your device.
