A new month brings with it a new edition of eXpressApp Framework (XAF) Tips & Tricks. We certainly hope the information contained within will be of value as you explore and leverage the capabilities of our cross-platform UI application framework for .NET developers. As always, if you’ve come across any helpful XAF-related support tickets we may have inadvertently missed, please do share the links in the comment section below.

New to XAF or considering it for the first time? Please visit XAF’s product pages for introductory information on its built-in capabilities: Considerations for Newcomers | .NET Role-based Access Control API.

XAF's Blazor UI Updates

First, some long-awaited good news: XAF's Blazor UI v21.1 assemblies, demos and project templates will target .NET 5 instead of .NET Standard 2.1. This opens new capabilities, both for us and also for XAF users: CSS Isolation, new Microsoft Identity Web packages for the latest Azure Active Directory SDK, performance and debugging enhancements, and so on. For more information, please review these Microsoft articles: The future of .NET Standard | What's new in ASP.NET Core 5.0 | Migrate from ASP.NET Core 3.1 to 5.0. Also, please await our 2021 roadmap in the next blog post!
