Microsoft has rolled out .NET Core Tools 1.0, the modular, high-performance implementation of .NET for developing web applications and services that run on Windows and other platforms including Linux and macOS.

The software giant explained in a blog post that .NET Core Tools 1.0 is compatible with the recently launched Visual Studio 2017. For starters, .NET Core allows users to create apps with the use of lightweight and modular tools. The tools leverage the .NET Standard library to unify coding across Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Microsoft also launched the Visual Studio 2017 last week with new versions of .NET Languages. That means you can now use C# 7, Visual Basic 15 and F# 4.1, with support for F# coming in the first half of this year.

The .NET Core 1.1.1 was also launched and is now available on Windows, macOS, Linux, and Docker. Microsoft also made the following services widely available:

  • .NET Core Tools 1.0.0 – only ships in Visual Studio 2017
  • Core Tools 1.0.1 – available in the SDK and via Docker SDK images
  • .NET Core Runtime 1.0.4 – available as a Runtime install or Docker image and in the .NET Core SDK
  • Core Runtime 1.1.1 – available as a Runtime install or Docker image and in the .NET Core SDK

If you are wondering as to why the company announced two SDK releases on the same day, here’s the explanation from Microsoft:

We didn’t intend to release two versions of the SDK on the same day. That would be silly! Instead, there is a good story! The short version of the story is that we missed an internally-set date to update the .NET Core Tools 1.0.0 release (the one going into Visual Studio 2017) to add support for some Linux distros, so were forced to create the 1.0.1 in order to make Fedora 24 and OpenSUSE 42.1 developers happy.

Developers can now grab the new .NET Core tools at the .NET Downloads web page.
