.NET Core 2.0 Is Now Released

The .NET platform continues to move forward and evolve, and now it’s usefulness is extending into more target-platforms. As of 2017 August 14th, .NET Core 2.0 is available as a final release. Now, you can develop against this as your primary target version of .NET and expect to run your software on Windows, MacOS, and Linux (see  here  for a list of supported OS versions).

You can download the bits and view installation instructions  here .  Note that Docker images are available too.

You will want to update your version of Microsoft Visual Studio to  Version 15.3  also.  This update brings you a significant set of fixes and incremental improvements.

See  the full announcement here.

If you are developing websites using ASP.NET-MVC, you can access the GitHub repo for the new Core version  here.

About James W Hurst

a professional software designer since the beginning days of the desktop cptr and uC-controlled avionics, I today am focusing on Java, Swift, C# and F# for building mobile and desktop and online applications under Android, Xamarin.Forms, iOS, WPF, and ASP.NET-MVC along with the requisite HTML/CSS/JavaScript/Ajax for web applications. My database expertise has covered a panoply of different database-engines and modeling approaches, and my main area of academic interest is Artificial Intelligence and vision.
