Microsoft released .NET 8.0 Preview 7 on August 8, 2023. It is the unification of earlier versions of the .NET Framework with .NET Core, enabling developers to use a single framework and runtime with uniform behavior supported on multiple platforms. .NET 8.0 will be released in November, 2023.
To work with .NET 8.0 you will need to install the current release of the Visual Studio 2022 (17.8) preview:
This release build has a minimum required version of SocketTools 11 Build 2148 or a later version. If you have an earlier version of SocketTools, you will need to upgrade to the current release.
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 8.0 assemblies, please contact us.
