Announcing Version 1.0 of .NET for Apache Spark
Today, we announce the release of version 1.0 of .NET for Apache® Spark™, an open source package that brings .NET development to the Apache® Spark™ platform. This release is possible due to the combined efforts of Microsoft and the open source community. Version 1.0 includes support for .NET applications targeting .NET Standard 2.0 or later. Access to the Apache® Spark™ DataFrame APIs (versions 2.3, 2.4 and 3.0) and the ability to write Spark SQL and create user-defined functions (UDFs) are also included in the release.
