C# version history and core features
toc Table of contents
C# is my favorite programming language and has been evolving overtime. I have been programming with many other languages but C# is always my favorite because it is simple and easy to use. Visual Studio is the most powerful tool I’ve ever used. To me, programming efficiency and performance are the key factors.
With each major release, new language or compiler features are added together with framework and IDE updates.
This page summarizes the version history up to C# 8.0 to help you recap the core features you may have missed.
* .NET Version doesn’t necessarily indicate the mini version that the feature could work on. For example, some features are compiler features/syntactic sugar and the code can work on previous version after compilation.
