Microsoft .NET Framework is a software component that is a part of several Microsoft Windows operating systems. It has a large library of pre-coded solutions to common programming problems and manages the execution of programs written specifically for the framework.
Developers use .NET to build applications of many types: Web applications, server applications, smart client applications, console applications, database applications, and more.
.NET Framework 3.5 builds incrementally on the new features added in .NET Framework 3.0. For example, feature sets in Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows CardSpace. In addition, .NET Framework 3.5 contains a number of new features in several technology areas which have been added as new assemblies to avoid breaking changes.

- Full tooling support in Visual Studio 2008 for WF, WCF, and WPF, including the new workflow-enabled services technology.
- New classes in .NET Framework 3.5 base class library (BCL) that address many common customer requests.
- Support for .NET Standard 2.0.
- Support for configuration builders.
- Run-time feature detection.
- Value tuple types are serializable.
- Support for read-only references.
- Garbage collection performance improvements.
- Support for portable PDBs:SHA-2 support for Message.HashAlgorithm.
