DK for ASP.NET Core Pre-release

Version 11.59.0 (retail) released in November 2021 contains a pre-release version of ASP.NET Core.


ASP.NET Core support is available for now only in the retail setup, so it can be tested only by existing customers. We plan to make the ASP.NET Core support generally available (including as a trial for evaluators) in version 11.59.0.

The support is for .NET Core versions 3.1, 5.0, and 6.0 and runs not only on Windows, but also on Linux and macOS.

The setup is universal for both WebForms and ASP.NET Core. Upon compilation, however, packages must be obtained from the private NuGET repository (exactly the same procedure as for Standard and Core components for non-web development).

The currently available DK ASP.NET Core version is fully functional, but we still work on some final improvements and documentation.

We made a huge effort to make the ASP.NET Core version as compatible as possible with the existing DK ASP.NET WebForms version. Due to the major platform differences, not everything is possible. However, porting existing code is doable. As proof, we ported all the WebForms source code samples to Core. Please compare the WebForms and ASP.NET Core samples server.
