Quality and reliability improvements
ASP.NET sequentially executes requests that have the same SessionID. This means that you may see the requests collecting in the queue if there are lots of concurrent requests that have the same SessionID. After you apply this fix, you can limit the number of the requests in the queue through the following appSettings entry:
<appSettings> <add key="aspnet:RequestQueueLimitPerSession" value="50"/></appSettings>
If you arrange an array of struct A and an array of struct B as SAFEARRAY and struct A and struct B have identical GUIDs, a memory leak may occur.
Note This update also contains cumulative updates that were released previously, starting from October 11, 2016.
