Updated chart of .NET version numbers

Way back when, I published a table detailing the version numbers of the various parts that make up a .NET application: The Tools, the C# language, the Framework itself and the Engine (CLR) that it all runs on. With the latest version about to be released I thought it was time to update that table.

 

Year 2002 2003 2005 2006 2007 2010
Tool VS.NET 2002 VS.NET 2003 VS 2005 VS 2005
+ Extension
VS 2008 VS 2010
Language (C#) v1.0 v1.1 v2.0 v2.0 v3.0 v4.0
Framework v1.0 v1.1 v2.0 v3.0 v3.5 v4.0
Engine (CLR) v1.0 v1.1 v2.0 v2.0 v2.0 v4.0

 

The main new thing is that finally someone has had the good sense to re-sync the version numbers. It all got a bit silly with the release of Visual Studio 2008.
