An upcoming version (2.0) of the .NET Core agent will drop support for .NET Core 2.1 and 3.0. This follows Microsoft's support policy with .NET Core 2.1 support ending on August 22 (EOL for .NET Core 3.0 was March 3, 2020).
What’s changing and why?
Upgrading to newer versions of .NET Core affords users a number of advantages:
- Decreases the size of agent download
- Reduces build server and code complexity
- Improves agent performance
- Among others
What does this mean to you?
Customers seeking to use Contrast on .NET Core 2.1 applications should continue to use .NET Core agent version 1.9.8.
Note: This change does not impact the .NET Framework agents in any way. We will continue to:
- Fully support the mainstream .NET Framework agent for the foreseeable future
- Fix critical bugs in the legacy .NET Framework agent until January 10, 2023
