Ubuntu 24.04 and .NET

With the release of Ubuntu 24.04, labelled Noble Numbat, the latest version of .NET, .NET 8, has been made available directly through the Ubuntu official package feeds from day one. This is a significant step forward in the collaboration between Canonical and Microsoft, designed to enhance developer productivity and streamline integration within Ubuntu systems.

This integration simplifies the installation and maintenance of .NET, essentially aligning it with the native Ubuntu package management workflow. This means no additional repositories or complicated setup procedures are necessary, facilitating a more seamless development experience.

For a comprehensive examination of how .NET has been incorporated into Ubuntu 24.04, including specifics on package management and container optimization strategies, I recommend reviewing the detailed blog post by Richard Lander, the Product Manager for the .NET team at Microsoft: What’s New for .NET in Ubuntu 24.04.

We look forward to your feedback and are excited to see the innovative applications you will craft using .NET 8 on Ubuntu 24.04.
