I’m excited today to read the post about a new release of ASP.NET Version 5. since this new release is one of the most significant architectural updates we’ve done to ASP.NET.

  • ASP.NET 5 is an open source web framework for building modern web applications that can be developed and run on Windows, Linux and the Mac.
  • Includes the MVC 6 framework, which now combines the features of MVC and Web API into a single web programming framework.
  • With ASP.NET 5 you gain the following foundational improvements:
    • Build and run cross-platform ASP.NET apps on Windows, Mac and Linux.
    • Built on .NET Core, which supports true side-by-side app versioning.
    • New tooling that simplifies modern Web development.
    • Single aligned web stack for Web UI and Web APIs.
    • Cloud-ready environment-based configuration.
    • Integrated support for creating and using NuGet packages.
    • Built-in support for dependency injection.
    • Ability to host on IIS or self-host in your own process
  • No longer requires System.Web.dll
  • ASP.NET 5 version is released as part of Visual Studio 2015
