.NET 6 is launched and it is a LTS launch which implies it’s going to be absolutely and actively supported for the following 3 years. In the event you’ve been paused ready for the suitable time to improve to .NET 6, it is a good time to make the transfer!
Proper now, Hanselman.com and Hanselminutes.com (my podcast) are operating on some model of .NET 5. You’ll be able to se by visiting them and scrolling to the very backside within the footer as I’ve added a git commit hash and Azure DevOps Construct Quantity and Construct ID to an ASP.NET web site and I am utilizing RuntimeInformation.FrameworkDescription to output the plain textual content model of .NET I am utilizing. This weblog is on .NET Core 3.0 which is an LTS launch however I will be working with Mark Downie this week to maneuver it to .NET 6 LTS as he is already obtained his occasion of dasBlog operating on 6!
OK, let’s have a look at what’s concerned. Let’s begin with my podcast website. I’ve obtained the code on GitHub and operating domestically with “dotnet run” on the command line in each Linux and Home windows. I can run the “dotnet improve assistant” which is nice, however I additionally wish to drive stick shift generally for smaller tasks.
I will replace my TargetFramework in my csproj undertaking file from net5.0 to net6.0 and replace the most important PackageReferences from 5.0.0 to six.0.0. It compiles.
Optionally, I will additionally run “dotnet outdated” which is one in all my favourite instruments. You will need to be sure you have a strong take a look at suite and never simply do that with out testing.
I see that a few of these are main adjustments so I can do a diff of those packages with a lot of instruments, however my favourite is FuGet.org (Thanks Frank!) so I can do a diff between the alpha model of Selenium I am utilizing and the launched see that the RemoteLogs sort is now referred to as Logs.
I may also replace my Dockerfile and alter variations like this
FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/sdk:6.0 as construct
FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/aspnet:6.0 AS runtime
I will verify that these photographs construct and take a look at. I additionally run my checks optionally inside a container in order that’s good.
A few of my websites use Azure DevOps and others use GitHub Actions. Each use YAML (yay) to handle their config, so I will replace my UseDotNet activity in Azure DevOps YAML to model: “6.0.x”
I will commit and begin constructing within the cloud!
Modifications to be dedicated:
(use "git restore --staged <file>..." to unstage)
$ git commit -m "improve to .internet 6"
I may also verify that my Azure App Service is ready to .NET 6, however that is solely wanted if I am NOT operating in a Docker Container or if I am NOT utilizing a self-contained executable.
Now I repeat this for my podcast and essential website and I am now on .NET 6! The weblog (a bigger improve) is subsequent.
