On June 27, 2016, Microsoft announced the release of .NET Core version 1.0, a revolutionary new platform for .NET developers everywhere. This new platform was released simultaneously for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and it is based on C# and the .NET Framework that you have spent the last 30 chapters learning about. The initial release included the .NET Core runtime, ASP.NET Core, and Entity Framework Core. Since then there have been two additional releases: 1.1 and 2.0 (the current release).
