We’re excited to announce the release of .NET Core 2.2. It includes diagnostic improvements to the runtime, support for ARM32 for Windows and Azure Active Directory for SQL Client. The biggest improvements in this release are in ASP.NET Core.
We are happy to let you know that .NET Framework 4.8 is now feature complete and we have an early access build to share with you all! We will continue to stabilize this release and take more fixes over the coming months,
The .NET Framework 4 saw the introduction of the System.Threading.Tasks namespace, and with it the Task class. This type and the derived Task<TResult> have long since become a staple of .NET programming, key aspects of the asynchronous programming model introduced with C# 5 and its async / await keywords.
I’d like to tell you about some of the recent changes we’ve made as part of our ongoing work to extend the optimization capabilities of RyuJIT, the MSIL-to-native code generator used by .NET Core and .NET Framework. I hope it will make for an interesting read,

.NET Core 2.0 introduces many new optimizations that will make your code even faster. A lot of work has been done in the base class library to improve performance,
RyuJIT is the just-in-time compiler used by .NET Core on x64 and now x86 and by the .NET Framework on x64 to compile MSIL bytecode to native machine code when a managed assembly executes. I’d like to point out some of the past year’s improvements that have gone into RyuJIT,
Update (2017/06/12): Added BenchmarkDotNet blog post link.
There are many exciting aspects to .NET Core (open source, cross platform, x-copy deployable, etc.) that have been covered in posts on this blog before. To me, though, one of the most exciting aspects of .NET Core is performance.
Today, we are releasing a new set of reliability and quality updates for .NET Core 1.0. This month’s update is our second Long Term Support (LTS) update and includes updated versions of multiple packages in .NET Core, ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core.
When we introduced WPF back in 2006 (.NET 3.0), the response was absolutely phenomenal. Enterprises, ISV’s, and Microsoft Partners have made the technology central to their business, building amazing vertical solutions and mission critical applications for their customers. This momentum carries forward to today – 10% of all newly created projects in Visual Studio 2013 over the past 60 days are WPF.
