Red Hat adds .NET Core 1.1 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
Today, we’re pleased to announce that .NET Core 1.1 is now available and supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. This second .NET Core release shows Red Hat’s continued commitment to opening up platform choices for enterprises seeking to use .NET in Linux environments, including container-centric operating systems. We’re also pleased to lead the way in the Linux world yet again with our support for .NET, as Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the only commercial Linux distribution to feature full, enterprise-grade support for .NET Core.
New application development highlights in Microsoft’s .NET Core 1.1 are:
- Over 1,300 new APIs since .NET Core 1.0.
- .NET Core 1.1 docker images from Red Hat’s container registry.
- Safe side-by-side installation with .NET Core 1.0.
- Performance improvements
If your development team is using a microservices-based approach where some components are built with .NET and others with Java, you can build and deploy on your choice of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
Other release details:
You can see the complete set of changes in the API between .NET Core 1.0 and .NET Core 1.1. .NET Core 1.1 is compatible with .NET Standard 1.6.0. The .NET Core 1.1 release does not contain the new CLI tooling (Preview 3). .NET Core 1.1 uses project.json (xproj) files rather than .csproj files.
.NET Core is available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server, Workstation, and Compute Node subscriptions.
