Release of ASP.NET Core 1.0

ASP.NET is a well-known cross-platform, open-source framework that is used by a large number of developers to build innovative web-based business applications and mobile apps among others. Ever since its conception some 14 years back, it became the preferred choice for many developers. The release of ASP.NET Core 1.0 has helped make it even more popular by making developing apps more convenient than ever before.  Not to mention that with this new version .NET is extending what it is built for: developer productivity, modern languages and libraries.

With this release, ASP.NET has gained plenty of useful modules as well as a perfectly cloud-based system with customized admin properties.

ASP.NET Core no longer requires System.Web.dll and most features are now implemented as NuGet packages in order to upgrade apps with everything you need. But, wait there is more.

Improvements Incorporated into ASP.NET Core 1.0:

  • Easier to build modern web-based, cross-platform apps on Linux, Mac & Windows
  • Exclusively built on .NET Core elements
  • It is truly a tool that helps revolutionize Web development
  • Web stack for Web UI and Web APIs
  • Cloud-based configuration and easy-integration
  • Built-in support for collaboration  
  • Ability to host on IIS or self-host in your own process

The .NET Web Development and Tools group at Microsoft have stated that this is just the beginning and features like SignalR and Web Pages will come later in the year alongside other features like Web Forms which are deeply tied to System.

.NET Core 1.0 Launch

It has been over 18 months since the talk of free and open source began to take shape in area of Microsoft Technologies. When Microsoft first talked about a free and open source .NET core project everyone grew eager and excited for its launch. It finally came out in the market on July 27, 2016.  

The project aims at bringing together the core and essential parts of the .NET Framework (with its much closer relative ASP.NET) to OSX, Linux and other computer operating systems. This is something which Microsoft managed to succeed in as it previously didn’t support such platforms.   

Since the time of its launch in the market, a large number of developers have contributed immensely to this open source. As many as eighteen thousand developers from about 13,00 companies have responded positively to its development. Additionally, the new version involves the release of the Standard Library which provides a great level of benefit for developers. They can make use of their skills in developing applications that flawlessly run on multiple servers, cloud, desktops or across a majority of popular devices.
