Introducing .NET Core

    Summary

    The .NET Core platform is a new .NET stack that is optimized for open source development and agile delivery on NuGet. We’re working with the Mono community to make it great on Windows, Linux and Mac, and Microsoft will support it on all three platforms.

    We’re retaining the values that the .NET Framework brings to enterprise class development. We’ll offer .NET Core distributions that represent a set of NuGet packages that we tested and support together. Visual Studio remains your one- stop-shop for development. Consuming NuGet packages that are part of a distribution doesn’t require an internet connection.

    We acknowledge our responsibility and continue to support shipping critical security fixes without requiring any work from the application developer, even if the affected component is exclusively distributed as NuGet package.

    Questions or concerns? Let us know by commenting on this post, by sending a tweet to @dotnet, or by starting a thread in the .NET Foundation forums. Looking forward to hearing from you!



  • Awesome, this is what we need to get C# and F# into the open source ecosystem.
