This release supports Visual Studio 2013. Companies who purchased a VG.net license after October 1, 2013, are eligible for a free upgrade. We will be sending you an email.

There is one cosmetic problem which wasted our time, as we could not find a work around. It occurs when your display is set to a high DPI. You can see the problem in the image of the toolbox below, which uses a DPI of 125%, on Windows 7:

The ToolboxItem class accepts only Bitmaps with a size of 16x16. We tried many sizes and many bitmap formats. As you can see, this tiny Bitmap is then scaled by the toolbox, and the scaling algorithm adds artifacts. This is an "improvement" Microsoft added to Visual Studio 2013.

Is there a cumulative changelog somewhere I can use to determine if upgrading is worth it?

Hello,

This release is only to support Visual Studio 2013. It is only worth an upgrade if you use that version. If you have a very old version of VG.net, please look at the VG.net 8.5a Readme file, which contains a change log. There only thing not mentioned in that log are minor documentation improvements for versions x.5.

The next release will probably focus on run-time performance only, not features.

Regards,
