Yesterday we announced the first preview of both Visual Studio 2019 (Making every developer more productive with Visual Studio 2019) and .NET Core 3.0 (Announcing .NET Core 3 Preview 1 and Open Sourcing Windows Desktop Frameworks).
Starting with Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9, we’ve changed how the Visual Studio tooling for .NET consumes .NET Core SDKs. Prior to this change, installing a preview version of the .NET Core SDK would cause all Visual Studio tooling for .NET Core to use that SDK because it had a higher version.
As you know we continue to incrementally improve Visual Studio 2017 (version 15), and our 7th significant update is currently well under way with the 4th preview shipping today. As we’re winding down the preview, we’d like to stop and take the time to tell you about all of the great updates that are coming in Visual Studio version 15.7 for .NET projects and ask you to try it and give us any feedback you might have while we still have time to correct things before we ship the final version.
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!
