.NET Core Lifecycle News

.NET Core 2.0 went end-of-life yesterday, October 1, 2018 (see announcement). This means 2.0 is no longer eligible for updates and builds will no longer be provided.

2.1 was declared LTS last month (see announcement) which began the end of life clock for 1.0 and 1.1. If remaining on the LTS channel is important to you, begin planning to migrate existing 1.0/1.1 applications to 2.1 before support for these channels ends on June 27, 2019.
