AlterNET Studio (WinForms & WPF Tooling/Components) Now Supports VS 2022, .NET 6
AlterNET Studio, packaging Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Foundation .NET component libraries and dev tooling, now supports Visual Studio 2022 and .NET 6.
In addition to supporting VS 2022 and .NET 6, other improvements listed by the Australia-based AlterNET Software include:
- Demo-projects are distributed with the source code that can target different .NET Frameworks via multi-targeted NuGet packages. This allows users to check the functionality under all supported frameworks, including .NET Core 6.
- User guides and reference documentation is moved online allowing us to continuously improve the API reference content.
- Python scripting and debugging now supports Python 3.7 language specification, and allows using popular third-party libraries like NumPy and pandas.
- Python and C++ debuggers using native tools via Debug adapter protocol (DAP) are now integrated in our solution.
- WinForms Form Designer now works under .NET Core 6 and can serialize its content to IronPython code-behind files.
As shown in the graphic above, demos are available.
A full list of changes is available here. Other information for AlterNET Studio 8, which comes in a trial evaluation version, is available in a FAQ.
