July 21, 2020-KB4562902 Cumulative Update Preview for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.7.2 for Windows 10 Version 1809 and Windows Server 2019

Applies to: .NET Framework

The July 21, 2020 update for Windows 10 Version 1809 and Windows Server 2019 includes cumulative reliability improvements in .NET 3.5 and 4.7.2. We recommend that you apply this update as part of your regular maintenance routines. Before you install this update, see the Prerequisites and Restart requirement sections.

Quality and reliability improvements


CLR1

- Addresses rare crashes that could occur during thread abort delivery.

ASP.NET

- Use FIPS-compliant hashes in ASP.Net telemetry data.

- Addresses an issue where "Unspecified" was not an allowed value in config for the 'cookieSameSite' attribute of the forms authentication and session state configuration sections.

- Addresses an issue where first requests to a cold site sometimes return a server configuration error from System.Web.DirectoryMonitor.AddFileMonitor().

WPF2

- Addresses an issue where TextBlock reflows (makes different line-breaking decisions) during render and hit-test, vs. during measure. The symptoms include missing text, and FailFast crashes during programmatic text processing.

- Addresses a render thread failure caused by HostVisual disconnecting its target on the wrong thread.

- Addresses a hang while scrolling a TreeView whose tree is non-uniform, in the sense thata given node's children govern subtrees whose sizes are quite different.

- DataGrid's Copy command throws an exception if the system clipboard is locked by another process. This crashes, as there is usually no app code on the stack to catch the exception. The behavior of TextBox (and other apps like Notepad, Word, browsers) in this situation is to fail silently - nothing is copied to the clipboard, but no exception. A WPF app can now opt-in to this behavior by setting <appSettings> <add key="ShouldThrowOnDataGridCopyOrCutFailure" value="false"/> </appSettings>in its app.config file.

- Addresses the way non-animated text with TextRenderingMode="ClearType" and TextFormattingMode="Ideal" is drawn. It now uses a symmetric anti-aliasing algorithm, which produces better visual results for text with fine strokes (common in Far East languages, Arabic, Hebrew, and fonts designed specifically for symmetric anti-aliasing).

- Addresses a crash that can occur when closing a tooltip that is re-entrantly closed by user code.

- Addresses a memory leak in System.Speech.SpeechSynthesizer.

- Addresses issues in constructing the internal model for a FixedPage document. Some text was appearing in the wrong order for the purposes of editing operations such as selection and copy/paste.

Net Libraries

- Addresses a memory leak in HttpListener.


1 Common Language Runtime (CLR)
2 Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
