Native .NET binaries


That is definitely cool. Maybe one day they will expand it to support all .NET apps and not just Windows Store ones.

I wonder how things like garbage collection work with native code. Does the compiler just generate extra code in your assembly that will spawn the background thread(s) or whatever they need to do it?

I’m not sure: would it be possible for them to automatically generate referencing counting code, so that they know when an object is no longer in use and they can free memory automatically within the program?
