Hi:

I've recently started working on a existing SignalR implementation.
Currently, we are using the 1.x release.
Existing projects within our solution set are using the 4.0 .Net Framework.
We are using ASP .Net (MVC) for the client applications.

I noticed that SignalR 2.x has been released.
I'm trying to make the determination whether possible gains justify going
to 2.x right now instead of delaying until our next major release.
To incorporate 2.x, we would have to make sure all our components have been upgraded to use the .Net 4.5 Framework (which of course comes with risks).

So, my questions are:

1) What are the major differences between the SignalR 2.x and 1.x releases?
I went to GitHub and saw a lot of bug fixes listed.

2) Are there new features and or performance and stability improvements which would make a compelling argument for moving forwards?

Thanks,
JohnB
