ASP.NET 5 is now ASP.NET Core 1.0.
.NET Core 5 is now .NET Core 1.0.
The name is has changed, nothing more than this!
Why new name 1.0?
Because the concept is new, its not having same architecture as previous version of ASP.net till 4.6.
However till now, the .NET Core 1.0 is not mature as earlier .NET Frameworks were, this is in testing and development phase. Earlier ASP.NET version are more mature and very well tested for developing a new project.
ASP.NET Core 1.0 is a 1.0 release which has Web API and MVC but not SignalR and Web Pages. It does not have VB and F# till now, they will be added in near future.
ASP.NET Core 1.0 a new framework, but earlier ASP.NET 4.6 version will remain there, and will be fully supported, but ASP.NET Core 1.0 is new, very new…
