I am trying to get clarification in regards to .net framework being released via WSUS. I have been reading conflicting things online. I have a 2012R2 deployment with WSUS 6.3, and noticing none of my Server 2012 servers have been getting the 4.5 framework. Looking in the console today, it is not even a downloaded update, I synchronized thinking maybe I missed it, the latest framework I see is 3.5 SP1. Could anyone please advise why this is not being downloaded into my WSUS console. I do not have language packs selected in Classifications, however my understanding this is an "update".
Do I have to manually download this?
Are you syncing the "Update Rollups" classification?
It shows up in my freshly built WS2012R2 WSUS ok?

Hmmm I did have Update Rollups selected in classifications but it wasn't showing as it does for you. I de-selected it and re-selected it and its showing up now and is also showing the update. thank you very much for your help :-)

.NET Framework 4.5 is not released to WSUS, but 4.5.1 is, in the "Feature Packs" Classification:
.NET Framework 4.5 is already included in Windows 8 and Server 2012 and 4.5.1 supercedes 4.5.
