Last month, we announced .NET support for Jupyter notebooks, and showed how to use them to work with .NET for Apache Spark and ML.NET. Today, we’re announcing the preview of a DataFrame type for .NET to make data exploration easy. If you’ve used Python to manipulate data in notebooks,
You can now write .NET Code in Jupyter Notebooks. Try .NET has grown to support more interactive experiences across the web with runnable code snippets, interactive documentation generator for .NET core with dotnet try global tool, and now .NET in Jupyter Notebooks. And you can get started with it today!
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,

F# Software Foundation has recently announced their new initiative — Applied F# Challenge! We encourage you to participate and send your submissions about F# on Azure through the participation form.
F# 4.6 is now fully released. See the announcement blog post for more.
We’re excited to announce that Visual Studio 2019 will ship a new version of F# when it releases: F# 4.6!
F# 4.6 is a smaller update to the F# language,
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.
We’re excited to share updates about changes to F# and F# tools which shipped with the Visual Studio 2017 version 15.7 release. Let’s dive in!
Type Providers now support .NET Standard
For those who aren’t familiar with Type Providers, they are a feature of F# which allow you to get IntelliSense for data.
With the release of Visual Studio 2017 version 15.6, we’re excited to share updates to the F# language and core library, F# tooling in Visual Studio, and infrastructure updates that concern OSS contributors. Let’s dive in!
F# language and core library updates
Some foundational changes for the F# language and core library have been made,
