Update on .NET Core 3.0 and .NET Framework 4.8

In May 2018, Microsoft announced .NET Core 3.0, the next major version of .NET Core that adds support for building desktop applications using WinForms, WPF, and Entity Framework 6. We also announced some exciting updates to .NET Framework which enable you to use the new modern controls from UWP in existing WinForms and WPF applications.

Today, Microsoft has shared a bit more detail on what Microsoft is building and the future of .NET Core and .NET Framework.

.NET Core 3.0 addresses three scenarios our .NET Framework developer community has asked for, including:

  • Side-by-side versions of .NET that support WinForms and WPF: Today there can only be one version of .NET Framework on a machine. This means that when we update .NET Framework on patch Tuesday or via updates to Windows there is a risk that a security fix, bug fix, or new API can break applications on the machine. With .NET Core, we solve this problem by allowing multiple versions of .NET Core on the same machine. Applications can be locked to one of the versions and can be moved to use a different version when ready and tested.

  • Embed .NET directly into an application: Today, since there can only be one version of .NET Framework on a machine, if you want to take advantage of the latest framework or language feature you need to install or have IT install a newer version on the machine. With .NET Core, you can ship the framework as part of your application. This enables you to take advantage of the latest version, features, and APIs without having to wait for the framework to be installed.

  • Take advantage of .NET Core features: .NET Core is the fast-moving, open source version of .NET. Its side-by-side nature enables us to quickly introduce new innovative APIs and BCL (Base Class Library) improvements without the risk of breaking compatibility. Now WinForms and WPF applications on Windows can take advantage of the latest .NET Core features, which also includes more fundamental fixes for an even better high-DPI support.

.NET Framework 4.8 addresses three scenarios our .NET Framework developer community has asked for, including:

  • Modern browser and modern media controls: Today, .NET desktop applications use Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player for showing HTML and playing media files. Since these legacy controls don’t show the latest HTML or play the latest media files, we are adding new controls that take advantage of Microsoft Edge and newer media players to support the latest standards.

  • Access to touch and UWP Controls: UWP (Universal Windows Platform) contains new controls that take advantage of the latest Windows features and touch displays. You won’t have to rewrite your applications to use these new features and controls. We are going to make them available to WinForms and WPF so that you can take advantage of these new features in your existing code.

  • High DPI improvements: The resolution of displays is steadily increasing to 4K and now even 8K resolutions. We want to make sure your existing WinForms and WPF applications can look great on these displays.
