Next Version (Januar 2017):

HartTools 7.5 will have the same meanwhile proven functions and interfaces as HartTools 7.4.
One of the new issues is a Hart Slave coded in C#. The code is based on a DLL which contains all common functionality and communication services for a Hart slave device. 
The examples are developed with Visual Studio 2013 and based on the Microsoft framework .NET 4.6.
HartTools 7.5 will be fully compatible to the new operating system Windows 10.
