After releasing .NET Core 3.0 Microsoft is all set for .NET 5. So, what so special about .NET 5 project? From now onwards there is no “Core” and no “Framework” -its only .Net from here. According to the Microsoft’s .NET Core milestones page shows .NET 5 is due in November 2020. After that there will be .NET 6, .NET 7 a new version every year. They are skipping .NET 4 to simplify the naming as it will confuse the users who are familiar with .NET framework 4 series.
