Announcing .NET MAUI support for .NET 7 Release Candidate 2
.NET Multi-platform App UI (MAUI) with .NET 7 Release Candidate 2 is now available in Visual Studio 17.4 Preview 4 on both Windows and Mac. The primary themes of RC2 are quality and .NET support for Xcode 14 with iOS 16. This release is covered by a go-live support license for use in production.
In related news, new libraries have also shipped for MSAL.NET and App Center (Preview). These are both key libraries that .NET MAUI developers have been asking for. MSAL.NET is essential when using Azure Active Directory and the Microsoft identity platform for authentication. App Center provides services for app diagnostics and analytics.

If targeting iOS, you can now build directly to your iOS device on Windows, or if you use a Mac (or Mac build host) by installing Xcode 14.0.x from the Apple Developer website. Note Apple’s minimum requirement for Xcode 14 is macOS Monterey 12.5 which is higher than Xcode 13.4 required.
