ASP.NET vNext Update from Hanselman

I’ve started to watch with eager interest the work being done on ASP.NET vNext. Read this excellent status rollup from Scott Hanselman.

Here are my favorite items:

  • Runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
  • Runtime in-memory compilation with Roslyn compiler.
  • Cloud optimized CoreCLR installed locally (optional).
  • New project.json system--takes NuGet to infinity and beyond.

I don’t often parrot other blog posts, but you really need to read Hanselman. If you haven’t been paying attention to what the team is doing with ASP.NET, you can repent now and get on board.
