Reset Major Version Number As many in the community, I view this rename prior to the RTM as a good thing.  ASP.NET 5 was a very confusing name as it is a completely new version of ASP.NET.  I welcome the reset to 1.0 as it gives a better description that this is indeed a rewrite and ground up work. Also, frameworks such as Entity Framework had also… Read More »ASP.NET 5 is now ASP.NET Core 1.0
