.NET Core March 2020 Updates – 2.1.17 and 3.1.3

Rahul Bhandari (MSFT)

Today, we are releasing the .NET Core March 2020 Update. These updates only contain non-security 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. Information needed to make this choice will be seen on the download page. If you use other development environments, we recommend using the latest SDK release.

Getting the Update

The latest .NET Core updates are available on the .NET Core download page. This update will be included in a future update of Visual Studio.

See the .NET Core release notes ( 2.1.17 | 3.1.3 ) for details on the release, including issues fixed and affected packages.

Docker Images

.NET Docker images have been updated for today’s release. The following repos have been updated.

Note: You must pull updated .NET Core container images to get this update, with either docker pull or docker build –pull.

    After installed the 3.1.2 SDK (from Visual Studio) remains. When publishing an application does it automatically take the now installed 3.1.3 or does it still stick to 3.1.2 from VS and I have to wait until a new VS release?

    Please can you provide a summary of what is updated in 3.1.3 .NET Core? The git md is just a list of PR’s with a tag at the moment.
