This packages enables projects targeting .NET Framework 4, Silverlight 4 and 5, and Windows Phone 7.5 (including any portable library combinations) to use new types from later versions of .NET including:
Tuple<T1, T2, ...>
These types are "unified" to their later version equivalent. For example, when running on .NET Framework 4.5, IProgress<T> from this package will be seen by the runtime as the same type as the one already in the platform.
This package is not required for projects targeting .NET Framework 4.5 or .NET for Windows Store apps. For known issues, please see: https://blogs.msdn.com/b/bclteam/p/asynctargetingpackkb.aspx.
