.NET Roadmap Update

  • .NET 5, expected to be generally available in late 2020, aims to unify Microsoft’s primary .NET offerings, although some unification has been delayed to .NET 6.
  • Consolidation will help developers by eliminating the need to work with multiple frameworks, and it will help IT staff by simplifying dependency deployments.
  • .NET Core should be used for new projects that cannot wait for .NET 5, and Xamarin should be used where needed until .NET 6 arrives.
  • Some .NET Framework applications will have to stay with .NET Framework 4.8.
