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.”
- 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.
