Migration from RC2?
If you are migrating from the RC2 release, there are a small number of breaking changes that you should be aware of when updating your code. These are all edge scenarios if you are doing more advanced customization of your application, and should not affect everyone. Among the changes that you may need to be aware of are:
- The EmbeddedFileProvider behavior has changed to set the baseNameSpace to the assembly name instead of an empty string.
- RuntimeEnvironment has been replaced with RuntimeInformation.
- Kestrel now binds to IPV4 and IPV6 loopback interfaces
- Kestrel server URLs must now be a full URL and not just a port number
- MVC now serializes JSON with camel case names by default
- The dotnet watch command syntax has been simplified
A detailed list of changes is available in the ASP.NET Announcements Issue List.
