Microsoft has spent the previous a number of months working with inner and exterior companions to offer builders entry to AI fashions, providers, and platforms, together with Azure OpenAI, Azure Cognitive Search, Milvus, Qdrant, and Microsoft Groups. The Semantic Kernel SDK helps simplify the mixing course of for working with these providers. 

To make it simpler for builders to get began with AI, the corporate additionally created a number of samples and reference templates that showcase AI patterns and practices. At present these embody Buyer Chatbot, Retrieval Augmented Technology, and Creating Apps utilizing Azure AI providers. 

The subsequent primary a part of this launch is the preview of .NET Aspire, which is a tech stack designer for constructing cloud-native purposes. It comes with parts that embody options like telemetry, resilience, configuration, and well being checks.

There have been additionally a number of updates made to learn builders utilizing containers. Microsoft is offering experimental variants of container photographs that present minimal utility sides. There are additionally new Chiseled Ubuntu picture variants, which additional scale back assault surfaces. 

Blazor, a framework for constructing interactive UIs, has additionally been up to date with a number of new options, together with the power to make use of Blazor Server and Blazor WebAssembly in the identical app, implementation of the “Jiterpreter” based mostly runtime, and help for producing Identification UIs. 

The cross-platform growth framework .NET MAUI was up to date as effectively with new controls, UI components and platform-specific behaviors, like desktop interplay getting higher click on dealing with and keyboard listeners. 

And at last, a number of C# enhancements from C# 12 have made their means into .NET 8.
