TL;DR We’ve moved the F# GitHub repository from microsoft/visualfsharp to dotnet/fsharp, as specified in the corresponding RFC.
F# has a somewhat strange history in its name and brand. If we roll back the clocks to the year 2015, F# sort of had two identities.
We’re excited to announce general availability of F# 4.6 and the F# tools for Visual Studio 2019! In this post, I’ll show you how to get started, explain the F# 4.6 feature set, give you an update on the F# tools for Visual Studio,
Starting with Visual Studio 2019 Preview 4, we'll be adjusting how C# versions are treated in .NET tooling. Firstly, we're adding two new Language Version (LangVersion) values: LatestMajor and Preview. Rad the post to see how they stack up with the currently supported list of values.

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.
