We are delighted today to announce the release of Plato 1.1.0. Our Plato 1.1.0 release introduces .NET Core 3.1 support and improves developer productivity when working with the Plato code.
Plato 1.1.0 now introduces .NET Core 3.1 support. This is an important step as unlike .NET Core 2.2 .NET Core 3.1 is a long term supported or LTS version of .NET Core and will be officially supported by Microsoft until December 2022. We hope this gives you the confidence to deploy Plato.
Alongside the move to .NET Core 3.1 Plato 1.1.0 now also introduces a new streamlined core. This is intended to ease build times and improve performance when working with Plato within Visual Studio. We've now merged the 70+ "Plato.Internal" projects that previously composed the Plato core into a new single project named "PlatoCore". You can see the new PlatoCore project here...
Plato 1.1.0 adds several new Visual Studio solutions that allow developers to load separate areas of Plato without having to load the entire solution. This is intended to help improve productivity when working with Plato within Visual Studio. As Plato grows we don't want the size of the Plato code base to bog down your development environment or impact your productivity.
