Microsoft today released a preview version of .NET Framework 4.8. The release is available for Windows 10 version 1809, Windows 10 version 1803, Windows 10 version 1709, Windows 10 version 1703, Windows 10 version 1607, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 SP1.
This build includes an updated .NET 4.8 runtime as well as the .NET 4.8 Developer Pack (a single package that bundles the .NET Framework 4.8 runtime, the .NET 4.8 Targeting Pack and the .NET Framework 4.8 SDK). Please note: this build is not supported for production use.
Developers can target .NET Framework 4.8 in Visual Studio by installing the .NET 4.8 Developer Pack. Instead, if you want to try just the .NET 4.8 runtime, you can download either of these:
- .NET 4.8 Web Installer – requires an internet connection during installation
- .NET 4.8 Offline installer – can be downloaded and installed later in a disconnected state.
The release comes with a huge list of fixes and new features. You can learn about them by visiting the following links:
.NET Framework build 3734 is also included in the next update for Windows 10. You can sign up for Windows Insiders to validate that your applications work great on the latest .NET Framework included in the latest Windows 10 releases.
