The plans for the upcoming .Net standard 2.1 has arrived. We have been on 2.0 for quite some time now. However it seems that this will be a smaller increment - which is what they wish state by calling it 2.1:
It's official. The next version of .NET Standard will be versioned as 2.1. And believe me when I say we considered many other alternatives. https://t.co/TqfSCucvOE— Immo Landwerth (@terrajobst) August 27, 2018
Something that is really confusing to me is that it seems that .Net core 2.1 and .Net standard 2.1 will not be compatible. At least that is how I read the above post. This is meant to underline that .Net core and .Net Framework are versioned independently, them both being at 2.1 is random.
