The Open Source ASP.NET 5 Has New Name ASP.NET Core 1.0

Published on Monday, January 25, 2016

Due to Scott Hanselman’s blog, Current ASP.NET was changed name to ASP.NET Core 1.0.

The main reason is that ASP.NET 5 is NOT a newer version which is to replace traditional ASP.NET (current version is 4.6), also, it is much more different with traditional ASP.NET;

“5 > 4.6 makes it seem like ASP.NET 5 is bigger, better, and replaces ASP.NET 4.6. Not so."…….".NET Core isn't as complete as the full .NET Framework 4.6.”

So:

  • ASP.NET 5 is now ASP.NET Core 1.0.
  • .NET Core 5 is now .NET Core 1.0.
  • Entity Framework 7 is now Entity Framework Core 1.0 or EF Core 1.0 colloquially.
