What is .NET 8?

As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, .NET 8 has not been released yet.


.NET is a free, open-source, cross-platform framework developed by Microsoft.

It provides a programming model and a runtime environment for building and running various types of applications, including web, desktop, mobile, gaming, and IoT applications.


With each new release of .NET, Microsoft introduces new features, improvements, and performance optimizations.

However, I don’t have specific information about the features of .NET 8 as it is beyond my knowledge cutoff.


It’s important to note that you should refer to the official Microsoft documentation or news sources for the most up-to-date and accurate information about .NET 8 and its features.
