    Announcing .NET 6 Preview 2

    Posted: 12 Mar 2021

    Today, we are glad to release .NET 6 Preview 2. It includes new APIs, runtime performance improvements, and early builds of .NET MAUI. It also includes builds for Apple Silicon, which were missing for Preview 1. After the announcement of the overall .NET 6 release, we’re now back to regularly scheduled monthly previews until the final release in November. You will see new features included in each preview that deliver on .NET 6 themes, epics and user stories. These themes offer improvements to every .NET application, including for server/cloud, desktop, IoT and mobile.

    You can download .NET 6 Preview 2, for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

    See the ASP.NET Core and EF Core posts for more detail on what’s new for web and data access scenarios.

    .NET 6 has been tested with Visual Studio 16.9 and Visual Studio for Mac 8.9. We recommend you use those builds if you want to try .NET 6.

    In this post, two of my team members will cover the .NET 6 themes that they are working on, specifically Improve inner-loop performance for .NET developers and .NET has a great client app development experience. I covered Improve startup and throughput using runtime execution information (PGO) in the .NET 6 Preview 1 post.
