Announcing .NET 5 Preview 4 and our Journey to one .NET

Published date: May 19, 2020

Preview 4 for .NET 5 is now available, with general availability coming in November. This release continues the journey to unify the .NET platform across mobile, web, desktop, artificial intelligence/machine learning, big data and IoT workloads.

.NET 5 will have several cloud and web investments, such as smaller, faster single file EXEs that use less memory, which are appropriate for microservices and containerized applications across operating systems. The unified implementation will eventually support all workloads and building apps for any operating system or device to help .NET developers build modern applications. Developers can now download .NET 5 Preview 4.
