Since I’ve been working with the community on porting desktop applications from .NET Framework to .NET Core, I’ve noticed that there are two camps of folks: some want a very simple and short list of instructions to get their apps ported to .NET Core while others prefer a more principled approach with more background information.
TL;DR We’ve moved the F# GitHub repository from microsoft/visualfsharp to dotnet/fsharp, as specified in the corresponding RFC.

Try .NET is an interactive documentation generator for .NET Core. Using the dotnet try global tool you can now create interactive documentation too. This is an early preview of the dotnet try global tool so, please check our repository and NuGet package for regular updates.
Take a tour through some of the many improvements, big and small, that have gone into the .NET Core 3.0 runtime and core libraries to make apps and services leaner and faster.

With last week’s posts Announcing .NET Core 3.0 Preview 5 and Visual Studio 2019 version 16.1 Preview 3, the last major feature of C# 8.0 is now available in preview.
A big impediment to software evolution has been the fact that you couldn’t add new members to a public interface.
Today, we are releasing the .NET Core May 2019 Update. These updates contain security and reliability fixes. See the individual release notes for details on updated packages.
NOTE: If you are a Visual Studio user, there are MSBuild version requirements so use only the .NET Core SDK supported for each Visual Studio version.
Today, we are releasing the May 2019 Cumulative Update, Security and Quality Rollup, and Security Only Update.

Those of you who have been following .NET development closely have very likely seen Scott Hunter’s latest blog post, .NET Core is the Future of .NET.
The first preview of the EF 6.3 runtime is now available in NuGet.
Note that the package is versioned as 6.3.0-preview5. We plan to continue releasing previews of EF 6.3 every month in alignment with the .NET Core 3.0 previews, until we ship the final version.
In .NET Core 3.0, we are introducing a suite of tools that utilize new features in the .NET runtime that make it easier to diagnose and solve performance problems.
These runtime features help you answer some common diagnostic questions you may have:
