SDK: .NET Standard and .NET 5 Support

Recently I wrote about .NET Standard 2.1 support for FPAssistant Suite SDK and this has now been completed. This means that the following SDK deliverables are available for download or by request:

  • Windows Class Library 32-bit/64-bit for Intel
  • Windows Class Library 32-bit/64-bit for ARM
  • Portable Class Library (PCL) [Not all API’s available]
  • .NET Standard 2.0
  • .NET Standard 2.1
  • .NET 5[(under development]

I expect to see that the PCL and the 32-bit DLL’s to be deprecated towards the end of the year although the projects will be kept in the solution should a customer require a specific build.

The long term plan will be to continue support for .NET Standard 2.1 as this will be used by most development environments for a while with .NET 5 taking over in many years to come.

This is all starting to get a bit complicated but hopefully with the release of .NET 5 here is a good explanation from Microsoft regarding the Future of .NET Standard and the use of .NET 5; click here
