      “Addresses an issue that restores VirtualizingScrollPanel scrolling behavior for CollectionChange event.”

      I don’t see a “VirtualizingScrollPanel” class in Windows Forms or Windows Presentation Foundation. Do you mean System.Windows.Controls.VirtualizingStackPanel?

      “Addresses Null Reference Exception when ToolTip is visible property is overridden to be always be false.”

      Which property do you mean? The System.Windows.Controls.ToolTip class does not have a “Visible” or “IsVisible” property. There is the ToolTipService.IsOpen attached property but I don’t understand how one could override that to always be false.
