Intro In September, we released .NET Core support for building Windows desktop applications, including WPF and Windows Forms. Since then, we have been delighted to see so many developers share their stories of migrating desktop applications (and controls libraries) to .NET Core.
.NET Core 3.1 Preview 2 is now available. This release is primarily focused on bug fixes, but it contains a few new features as well. Here’s what’s new in this release for ASP.NET Core: New component tag helper Prevent default actions for events in Blazor apps Stop event propagation in Blazor apps Validation of nested models in Blazor forms Detailed errors during Blazor app development See the release notes for additional details and known issues.
.NET Core 3.0 is now available and we have received a lot of questions about what that means for the future of C++/CLI. First, we would like to let everyone know that we are committed to supporting C++/CLI for .NET Core to enable easy interop between C++ codebases and .NET technologies such as WPF and Windows Forms.
Today, we’re announcing .NET Core 3.0 Release Candidate 1. Just like with Preview 9, we’ve focused on polishing .NET Core 3.0 for a final release. We are now getting very, very close. We intend to release the final version on September 23 at .NET Conf.
