We’re pleased to announce some updates to the .NET Core tools for Visual Studio 2019. You can try these changes out starting with Preview 2. We’d love for you to try out these new features and give us feedback.
Starting with Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9, we’ve changed how the Visual Studio tooling for .NET consumes .NET Core SDKs. Prior to this change, installing a preview version of the .NET Core SDK would cause all Visual Studio tooling for .NET Core to use that SDK because it had a higher version.
Today, we’re incredibly pleased to announce general availability of F# 4.5.
This post will walk through the changes in F# 4.5 (just like the preview post), then show some updates to F# tooling, and finally talk a bit about where what we’re thinking about for the next F# version.
Accounting for this change on Windows build servers: You may be doing one of the following things to install F# on a Windows build server. Installing the full Visual Studio IDE Installing the F# Compiler SDK MSI Neither of these options have been recommended for some time, but are still available with F# 4.1. For using F# 4.5 in a Windows build server, we recommend (in order of preference), Using the .NET SDK, the FSharp.Compiler.Tools package, or the Visual Studio Build Tools SKU.
Better async stack traces Starting with F# 4.5 and FSharp.Core 4.5.0, stack traces for async computation expressions: Reported line numbers now correspond to the failing user code Non-user code is no longer emitted For example, consider the following DSL and its usage with an FSharp.Core version prior to 4.5.0: Note that both the f1 and f2 functions are called twice.
