Microsoft has released the .NET 6.0 Framework. It is the unification of the .NET Framework with .NET Core and enables developers to use a single framework and runtime with uniform behavior with support on multiple platforms. .NET 6.0 is the current long-term support (LTS) version and will reach end-of-support on November 12, 2024.
To work with .NET 6.0, you will need to install the current release of Visual Studio 2022:
The minimum required version of SocketTools is 10.0.1290.2024. If you have an earlier version of SocketTools, you will need to upgrade to the current release. This update is free to developers who have a version 10 license. SocketTools 10 and SocketTools 11 includes .NET 6.0 assemblies as part of our standard installation package.
SocketTools remains focused on Windows desktop and server development and will only provide support for those platforms. If you have any questions about using the .NET 6.0 assemblies, please contact us.
