Introduction to ASP.NET Core v1.0 (MVC6 and EF 7)
At the time of writing this book, Microsoft was working on the next version of .NET, known as .NET Core v1.0. This contains some significant changes to .NET, with the biggest aim to make it more platform independent. Due to the size of the changes, the release is going to be named ASP.NET Core v1.0. Originally it was going to be known as ASP.NET v5 and ASP.NET MVC included in this release was going to be MVC v6. Entity Framework was going to be known as v7; however, everything is now included under the single umbrella of ASP.NET Core v1.0.
