.NET Framework 4.8 online and offline installers
Microsoft released the final version of the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8. The new installer is available for online and offline use. Below you will find the links for downloading the application in either of the two ways you want.
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 is a new version of the popular Microsoft Framework and features new features, fixes and enhancements compared to previous versions.
Microsoft has released the new .NET 4.8 Framework for Windows 7 Operating Systems 1, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, and all Servers starting from Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (Windows Server 2012 R2, 2016 and 2019).
The upcoming Windows 10 operating system version 1903, or May 2019 Update which will be released in late May already includes the 4.8 version of the .NET Framework.
The complete list of changes is available on the site Microsoft Docs.
New .Net Framework 4.8 features include high-DPI display enhancements, improved support for Windows Forms interoperability in high-DPI WMF applications on mixed mode DPI platforms, and support for Per-Monitor V2 DPI Awareness.
The new framework comes with an updated Zlib library used for data compression, and a new ServiceHealthBehaviorWCF service that improves the IServiceBehavior service.
The .NET Framework as mentioned above comes with two installers: Web and Offline. The difference is that the Web Installer needs an internet connection to download the necessary files.
The .NET Framework 4.8 offline installer is larger in size but does not need an active Internet connection.
