The best software platform in the world gets even better
published on 2019/09/24

We’re excited to announce the release of .NET Core 3.0. It includes many improvements, including adding Windows Forms and WPF, adding new JSON APIs, support for ARM64 and improving performance across the board. C# 8 is also part of this release, which includes nullable, async streams, and more patterns. F# 4.7 is included, and focused on relaxing syntax and targeting .NET Standard 2.0. You can start updating existing projects to target .NET Core 3.0 today. The release is compatible with previous versions, making updating easy.


This is such an exciting release for a .NET Core focused company like SilverKey. We rely on this technology exclusively for our projects and we have seen ASP.NET Core advances leaps and bounds in terms of features and performance in every single release.

Our popular OSS project, Practical ASP.NET Core, a collection of over 300+ samples for ASP.NET Core, has also been updated with the final release of .NET Core 3.0.

Orchard Core CMS, another of our favorite software (it powers this website) has also been upgraded to run on ASP.NET Core 3.0 and now has reached Release Candidate 1 status.
