New Start – ASP.NET Core 1.0

All ASP.NET lovers following the great web application development framework may be thinking, why we need to think of the old and dead version1.0 ? We were already in ASP.NET 4.6 and waiting for ASP.NET 5, no time to think about 1.0. Hold on.

Microsoft renamed our dearest ASP.NET 5 as ASP.NET Core 1.0. ASP.NET Core is written from scratch and it is a new beginning; so renamed to ASP.NET Core 1.0. As mentioned, it is a new start, so don’t expect all the ASP.NET 4.6 features right now in ASP.NET Core 1.0. They will incorporate more relevant features from ASP.NET 4.6 in future versions.

Along with this, MS renamed the supporting frameworks to declared a new beginning
ASP.NET 5 => ASP.NET Core 1.0
.NET Core 5 => .NET Core 1.0
Entity Framework 7 => Entity Framework Core 1.0 / EF Core 1.0

Now, how we are going to google on the new features ?

All the existing articles refer ASP.NET 5, whereas new articles will refer the same as ASP.NET Core 1.0.
Google two times or use OR ? 🙂
Is google bring data relevant to ASP.NET Core 1.0 or ASP.NET 1.0 ?

New version change removed the myth – ASP.NET 5 is a higher version of ASP.NET 4.6. As usual we expected ASP.NET 5 as the next version of ASP.NET with more features than ASP.NET 4.6.

    I am just trying to get into .Net core and trying to understand the runtime. Is it from scratch or just a fork of old .Net framework and modularized? I could see there are some APIs missing in core. Confused whether its fork or written from scratch.
