Add .NET Framework 4.5 support to LightSwitch 2012

LightSwitch is currently limited to run on .NET 4.0

.Net 4.5 have great new features, when will LightSwitch developers be able to take advantage of these new features? List of new features here:

Our server is in our control and we are not limited to .NET 4.0, but if other users where limited to .NET 4.0 it would be much better if Lightswitch (like other Visual Studio projects) supports more than one target version of .NET Framework for it's server code. This fact has already been determined on these threads:

    Thank you for your suggestion on improving LightSwitch. However, Visual Studio 2015 is the last release of Visual Studio that includes the LightSwitch tooling and we recommend users not begin new application development with LightSwitch. That said, we will continue to support users with existing LightSwitch applications, including critical bug fixes and security issues as per the Microsoft Support Lifecycle. Please see the blog post for more information: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/lightswitch/2016/10/14/lightswitch-update/
