Description Martin Baulig 2012-09-04 15:19:48 UTC
WebClient's pre-4.5 async methods create a new thread and use Thread.Interrupt for cancellation.  This was the only way of implementing it prior to .NET 4.5, but now these methods could simply become wrappers around their Task equivalents when compiling on the 4.5 profile.

There are also no nunit tests for any of these methods.
