Default Book release date and .NET Core release date

I am wondering since .NET Core is pushed back is this book's release pushed back as well? Currently I see it for release in late April (11 May on UK bookstores). I hope it does since releasing this one when .NET Core is still changing a LOT and missing a LOT of features would be a waste. If not, can we expect free additions (appendixes or whatever) after the book's release that will cover the changes-additions?

Someone might argue that you can check online for more info but what good is a book if it doesn't at least try to cover the latest changes (and point you to online resources for more)?

I am waiting this book for a long time. I hope you don't disappoint. The VS2012 one was exceptional. The VS2013 wasn't worth it.

With all the new changes and additions in c# 6 . net framework 4.6.1, .net core 1, vs 2015 this book has the potential to be a complete reference.

Kind regards,
Papathomas Ioakeim

Indeed, the book was delayed a little. However, it is ready now - and the title changed to "Professional C# 6 and .NET Core 1.0".

With the VS2013 edition you mean there haven't been that many changes compared to the VS2012 edition? That's true.

This is very different with the new version. You're right in expecting a lot of changes and additions with C# 6, .NET Core 1.0, and Visual Studio 2015.

It was not easy with the late changes of .NET Core, which also delayed .NET Core. I incorporated the updates into the book; it also covers the new .NET Core command line (CLI) tools and other new features.

The code files on the Wrox site are currently based on RC1, but the book shows newer code, and I don't expect that the code itself changes with RTM a lot. When RC2 is available, the code download on the Wrox site will be updated. In the meantime, you can also get and read the code samples at http://www.github.com/ProfessionalCS...ssionalCSharp6.

I hope you enjoy the new edition!

As questions such as this are coming up, I've added my thoughts to a blog article: https://csharp.christiannagel.com/20...onalcsharprc2/

RTM for .NET Core 1.0 is now planned for Jun-27.

Thank you Mr. Nagel for your amazing book and for your blog. I am visiting your blog quite a lot. Very good work.

Your are doing it already but if you could focus more on xaml-based technologies (wpf, uwp etc) it would be a wonder. Not only things from the book (which I'll say again are very well written) but your personal view or expertise on the subjects plus more subjects as well. There are, or will be, wrox books that cover ASP.NET but none on xaml-based technologies.

Kind Regards,
Papathomas Ioakeim

Thanks for your feedback. I'll write more about XAML in my blog. A few articles are already in the loop, but your feedback is a good motivation to add more about XAML - with WPF, UWP, and Xamarin :-)

Greetings,
Christian
