ASP.NET Core 2.2 is out, in time for some holiday projects. This looks to be mainly a performance release, which is great. Functionally it’s pretty similar to 2.1, the latest Long Term Support release.
If you’re planning to upgrade to 3.0 then it’s worth moving to 2.2 but if you want to stick on 2 then stay with 2.1, as that will continue to be supported. If you’re feeling adventurous then you can already experiment with the preview build of version 3.0.
You can read more about ASP.NET Core 2 in my book, which has a new cover. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
