Back in June, Microsoft celebrated its bringing .Net Core and ASP.Net Core to version 1.0, and there’s no signs of the company slowing down any time soon. For those who are unaware, .Net Core and ASP.Net Core are open source projects that focus a lot on networking.

We understand that Microsoft has a lot to offer in version 2.0 of the .Net Core roadmap in the future. Many of the APIs that are currently missing are expected to show up in the next version, though we cannot say at this time when exactly you should look out for it.

“These APIs will be part of .Net Standard 2.0, which will be released at the same time, resulting in APIs being consistent across .Net Framework, .Net Core, and Xamarin. It will be much easier to write portable code that can run on all the major .NET platforms, targeting .NET Standard 2.0. Expect a preview of this work to start showing up after we ship the Q4/Q1 release,” says Scott Hunter from the .Net Core engineering team and Microsoft.

These are some of the things .Net Core will include when it is made available:

  • Tuples and pattern matching, along with other languages
  • Languages will be improved with throw expressions and binary literals
  • Accommodation of ARM 32/64 processors for both Windows and Linux
  • Tooling from xproj/project.json system to .csproj/MSBuild

Interestingly enough, Microsoft’s Functional First language, known as F#, now supports .Net Core.

Bear in mind that many of these changes will come during Microsoft’s fiscal year of Q1 2017. Furthermore, updates are expected to continue until the next calendar year.
