Future Release Plans for .NET Core 1.0

In its mission to maintain openness with the developer community, Microsoft shows the road ahead for the eventual release of .NET Core 1.0 with Visual Studio 15.

In its continuing mission to maintain openness with the developer community, Microsoft has produced a roadmap for the path ahead for the eventual release of .NET Core 1.0 with Visual Studio '15'. That roadmap shows that the .NET team has designs to release two previews of .NET Core 1.0 and ASP.NET Core 1.0 at the end of May and June.

Scott Hunter, a program manager with Microsoft's .NET team, notes in a blog post that the .NET Core preview releases are split into two parts: runtime/libraries, and tooling. "We're splitting the .NET Core "release train" so that those of you who are waiting can go live on .NET Core 1.0 RC2 with confidence," writes Hunter, "while we continue to deliver on our plans for the tooling."

Hunter adds that .NET Core and ASP.NET Core 1.0 Release Candidate 2 Preview 1, which is expected sometime in the next two weeks, will have some new tooling that includes some command-line tools that will work with Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.

A second preview that bundles more tooling work will be released at the end of June.
