.Net 5.0 Preview 7

.Net 5.0 Preview 7 is now available for download.

When Microsoft announced .NET 5 at Microsoft Build 2019 in May, it marked an important step forward for developers working across desktop, Web, mobile, cloud and device platforms. In fact, .NET 5 is that rare platform update that unifies divergent frameworks, reduces code complexity and significantly advances cross-platform reach.

This is no small task. Microsoft is proposing to merge the source code streams of several key frameworks -- .NET Framework, .NET Core and Xamarin/Mono. The effort will even unify threads that separated at inception at the turn of the century, and provide developers one target framework for their work.

The result of this work is a unified platform with the .NET 5 framework executing on all platforms (desktop, Web, cloud, mobile and so on).

You can-- download .NET 5.0 Preview 7, for Windows, macOS, and Linux:

You need to use Visual Studio 2019 16.7 to use .NET 5.0. .NET 5.0 is now supported with Visual Studio for Mac. Install the latest version of the C# extension to use .NET 5.0 with Visual Studio Code.

Happy Coding!!!
