Announcing Entity Framework Core 2.1 Preview 1

App Center Team

Today we are releasing the first preview of EF Core 2.1, alongside .NET Core 2.1 Preview 1 and ASP.NET Core 2.1 Preview 1.

The new bits are available in NuGet as part of the individual packages, and as part of the ASP.NET Core meta-packages (both Microsoft.AspNetCore.All and the new Microsoft.AspNetCore.App), and included in the .NET Core SDK.

The majority of the new features of EF Core 2.1 are present and ready to try in Preview 1: We want to maximize the exposure of the new features to you, our customers, and the amount of time we will have to address your feedback before the final release. We would like to encourage you try this preview release and to let us know what you think.
