LC .NET version
Released February 14th, 2024.
LightningChart® .NET has reached version 11 ! In this release we migrated library code to .NET 6.0. The release also includes several other improvements.

LightningChart changes the target framework: .NET Framework 4.8 and .NET 6.0
Previous versions of LightningChart's library have been built targeting .NET Framework 4.6.2 or earlier. In version 11.0.1 LightningChart's builds will be targeting .NET Framework 4.8 and .NET 6.0. New editions are available as WinForms, WPF (non-bindable) and MVVM (bindable version of WPF). Changes are made to utilize full support of .NET Standard API in .NET Framework 4.8 build. In addition, .NET 6.0 build was created (library's code migrated) to ensure native support for LightningChart control in .NET project. Due to compatibility mode, LightningChart v11.0.1 (built targeting .NET Framework 4.8) could be used in project which will target .NET Framework 4.8, 4.8.1 as well as .NET Core 3.0, Core 3.1, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0. Meanwhile LightningChart v11.0.1 (built targeting .NET 6.0) could be used in .NET project 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0.

Interactive Examples App
We continue improving Interactive Examples application, the essential tool to browse different features of LightningChart and extract example code projects. Examples could be now extracted not only as .NET Framework project (as before), but also as .NET 6.0 projects. Example could be extracted to 7 project types: .NET Framework 4.8 or .NET 6.0 for WinForms, WPF and MVVM (bindable), and UWP. Though not every example is converted yet to all 7 types. In addition, we polished examples, cleared their code, fixed some errors.

Improved DPI awareness handling in charting application
Now there is major improvement in handling text rendering in WinForms application which is DPI aware. In addition, per monitor DPI awareness is handled better (for WPF and WinForms) by LightningChart (in regards of text rendering), especially in .NET 6.0 targeting build of library.

LightningChart changes the assemblies names and namespaces
We harmonized assemblies’ names (DLL names) and namespaces to reflect difference between build (affix NET4 is used to identify .NET Framework 4.8 build of LightningChart library, affix NET6 is used to identify .NET 6.0 build). We also removed 'Arction' affix (LightningChart Ltd old company name) from names used in library. The full list of names could be found in detailed changelog or migration guide.

Online documentation
We are launching new online page with .NET documentation, which makes finding information about charting easier to find by users. While User Manual ( is still more comlete guide, eventually all information from User Manual and additional tips will be trasfered online.

Note: The target framework version for LightningChart's library update to .NET Framework 4.8. Any user's .NET Framework project, which uses LightningChart's library should set target framework at least .NET Framework 4.8. Any newer version (like .NET Framework 4.8.1 or .NET 7.0) is fine as well. .NET 6.0 LightningChart control/project requires Visual Studio 2022 or above.
