Latest .NET version is 4.7.1. Windows 10 has 4.7.1 pre-installed after version 1709 (aka creators update) which was released in October 17, 2017.


Latest ASP.NET version is a 4.6 which was released in July 20, 2015. ASP.NET has moved into ASP.NET Core and there is no new version in sight for ASP.NET. All the development work is done into ASP.NET Core.

Last good old ASP.NET MVC version was published in February 2, 2015. After that is all ASP.NET Core MVC. Latest ASP.NET Core MVC version is 2.0.2 and its available as Nuget package
