    Announcing .NET 6 Release Candidate 1

    We are happy to release .NET 6 Release Candidate 1. It is the first of two “go live” release candidate releases that are supported in production. For the last month or so, the team has been focused exclusively on quality improvements that resolve functional or performance issues in new features or regressions in existing ones.

    You can download .NET 6 Release Candidate 1 for Linux, macOS, and Windows.

    See the .NET MAUI and ASP.NET Core posts for more detail on what’s new for client and web application scenarios.

    We’re at that fun part of the cycle where we support the new release in production. We genuinely encourage it. In the last post, I suggested that folks email us at to ask for guidance on how to approach that. A bunch of businesses reached out wanting to explore what they should do. The offer is still open. We’d love to hit two or three dozen early adopters and are happy to help you through the process. It’s pretty straightforward.

    .NET 6 RC1 has been tested and is supported with Visual Studio 2022 Preview 4. Visual Studio 2022 enables you to leverage the Visual Studio tools developed for .NET 6 such as development in .NET MAUI, Hot Reload for C# apps, new Web Live Preview for WebForms, and other performance improvements in your IDE experience.

    Support for .NET 6 RC1 is coming soon in Visual Studio 2022 for Mac Preview 1, which is currently available as a private preview.

    Check out the new conversations posts for in-depth engineer-to-engineer discussions on the latest .NET features.

    The rest of the post is dedicated to foundational features in .NET 6. In each release, we take on a few projects that take multiple years to complete and that (by definition) do not deliver their full value for some time. Given that these features have not come to their full fruition, you’ll notice a bias in this post to what we’re likely to do with these features in .NET 7 and beyond.
