Target Framework to .NET 4.5

See original GitHub issue

Feature proposal

DotSpatial currently targets .NET 4 CP. I just want to put in the proposal to switch to .NET 4.5 for the upcoming 2.0 version since that seems like a good time to do so.

The reason is mostly that the newer .NET 4.5 offers the async/await pattern that could to leveraged in the IO-heavy components of DotSpatial. I am thinking especially about DotSpatial.Data.

Adding *Async functions there will improve the usability of DotSpatial, especially when used inside a UI.

I know that. But .NET Core makes it extremely easy to support multiple targets because the IDE tells you what functions are available and what functions are not. Also it allows very easy switching of the current target framework during development.

btw, we can build assemblies\nuget packages for various .net targets without using .net core. Simply use msbuild scripts fro that.
