Recently at the Red Hat DevNation conference we announced the release of .NET Core 1.0 and our partnership with Red Hat. You can Watch the on-demand stream via Channel 9 where Scott Hanselman demonstrated .NET Core 1.0.
We are excited to announce the release of .NET Core 1.0, ASP.NET Core 1.0 and Entity Framework Core 1.0, available on Windows, OS X and Linux! .NET Core is a cross-platform, open source, and modular .NET platform for creating modern web apps, microservices, libraries and console applications.
This release includes the .NET Core runtime, libraries and tools and the ASP.NET Core libraries. We also released the Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code extensions that will enable you to create .NET Core projects. You can get started at https://dot.net/ (its way more fun saying it - dot dot net?!?). Read the release notes for detailed release information.
We also released a new set of .NET documentation at docs.microsoft.com, the new documentation service for Microsoft. The documentation you see there is just a start. You can follow the engineering progress at core-docs on GitHub. ASP.NET Core documentation is also available and open source.
In addition, .NET Core is now available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenShift via certified containers. In addition, .NET Core is fully supported by Red Hat and extended via the integrated hybrid support partnership between Microsoft and Red Hat. See the Red Hat Blog for more details.
There has been a lot of community engagement pre and post RTM, you can find top articles and blogs at the ASP.NET Community Page.
