Announcing .NET Core 2.1 Preview 1

App Center Team

Today, we are announcing .NET Core 2.1 Preview 1. It is the first public release of .NET Core 2.1. We have great improvements that we want to share and that we would love to get your feedback on, either in the comments or at dotnet/core #1297.

ASP.NET Core 2.1 Preview 1 and Entity Framework 2.1 Preview 1 are also releasing today.

You can download and get started with .NET Core 2.1 Preview 1, on Windows, macOS, and Linux: •.NET Core 2.1 Preview 1 SDK — includes the Runtime •.NET Core 2.1 Preview 1 Runtime

You can develop .NET Core 2.1 apps with Visual Studio 2017 15.6 Preview 6 or later, or Visual Studio Code. We expect that Visual Studio for Mac support will be added with Visual Studio 2017 15.7.

ASP.NET Core 2.1 Previews will not be auto-deployed to Azure App Service. Instead, you can opt in to using previews with just a little bit of configuration.

Visual Studio Team Service support for .NET Core 2.1 will come at RTM.
