Red Hat Dev Tools To Support .NET Core 2.0

Red Hat Inc. today announced its product portfolio -- including developer tools -- will support the new .NET Core. 2.0 standard released last week by Microsoft.

The champion of open source products -- including Linux distros, cloud products/services and associated developer tools -- claims to be "the only commercial Linux provider to offer full, enterprise-grade support for .NET Core across its portfolio."

To further that claim, the company today said .NET Core 2.0 support will soon be available to developers using its products via the recursively named RPM Package Manager (RPM) or within the company's Linux container images.

"A lightweight and modular platform for creating Web applications and microservices, .NET Core 2.0 provides significant new developer capabilities while enabling developers to create .NET applications across platforms, and deploy on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, and more," the company said in a statement.

The full list of Red Hat platforms on which developers will be able to create and deploy apps leveraging .NET Core 2.0 is:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host
  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
  • Red Hat OpenShift Online
  • Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated
  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform

".NET Core 2.0 marks a significant step forward for the .NET Core community and the developer world at-large, and we're very pleased to have closely collaborated on this new release with Red Hat," said Microsoft's Scott Hunter, director, Program Management, .NET, in Red Hat's statement. "We believe that developers will be pleased to be able to write familiar .NET code from their platform of choice, and that operations teams, who use Red Hat solutions, will enjoy having the freedom to deploy to Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform on-premises or in Microsoft Azure."
