We would like to upgrade from ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF 10.1.1 to WPF 10.2.
Due to automated build environments, programmer platforms on VMs, test environments, and customer prerequisites, it is difficult for us to change them mid-course for a targeted release.  However since ArcGIS Runtime is only used by one application with few developers and uses xcopy deployment, we could be in a position to upgrade that.

Is it possible to continue to use the old style asynchronous method calls (events and function callbacks) using Visual Studio 2012, targeting .Net 4.0, and without installing the Async for .NET Framework 4?  (there are some issues adding that async framework to our development platform right now).
We would like to just have our 10.1.1 based code just reference the new version and be able to get the benefits of the bug fixes and improvements in 10.2.
