.NET 5 – One .NET to rule them all

There is No More .NET Core, it’s .NET 5

Here’s the umbrella of .NET 5 to the rescue. It’s a MAJOR change because of the following reasons:

As the first part of this unification scheme, Microsoft’s Xamarin mobile development platform will switch from using the Mono BCL to join other components leveraging the .NET Core BCL. With that move, Xamarin mobile development will be folded into .NET 5. That means that for the first time, one BCL-based framework will handle all app models:

  • ASP.NET Core
  • Entity Framework Core
  • Blazor
  • WinForms
  • WPF
  • Xamarin
  • ML.NET

Wait, WPF and WinForms made it into .NET 5? Yes, it’s true. Hello there, old friends! Nice to see them included in this runtime. The idea of using one SDK to build apps with is pretty exciting stuff, if you ask me.
