Issues that this hotfix rollup fixes

ASP.NET issue

Contention and bad performance on System.Web.BufferAllocator when you run a web application on computers that have more than 32 cores.

Fix: The contention has been eliminated by removing the global lock in System.Web.BufferAllocator.​

Windows Forms issue

The Windows Forms PrintPreviewDialog UI is initialized very slowly when the following conditions are true:

  • A network printer is used.

  • User preferences on this printer, such as duplex settings, are modified.

We added a performance optimization to this scenario. If page settings were not modified for a specific page, we are not reapplying (by accessing the printer spooler) printer settings for this page. If the application modifies printer settings by using the QueryPageSettings event handler, print preview generation performance for the affected pages will not improve even if the opt-in flag is set.

In order to opt in to this optimization, the following key should be added to the app.config file, depending on the version of .NET Framework:

.NET Framework 4.5.2:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
< appSettings >
< add key="OptimizePrintPreview" value="true" />
< /appSettings >
</configuration> .NET Framework 4.6 or a later version:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
< runtime>
< AppContextSwitchOverrides value = "Switch.System.Drawing.Printing.OptimizePrintPreview=true" />
< /runtime>
</configuration> If an application can run on either version of the .NET Framework, use both switches in the same file.

To opt out, remove the switch, or set the values to false. ​

ClickOnce issue

ClickOnce has been updated to support TLS 1.1 and 1.2. ClickOnce will automatically detect which TLS protocol is required at runtime. There are no extra steps required in ClickOnce to enable this functionality.

Note ClickOnce continues to support TLS 1.0 for the foreseeable future, even though it is no longer considered PCI-compliant.​
