๐Ÿ“– About AvaloniaUI

Avalonia is a cross-platform XAML-based UI framework providing a flexible styling system and supporting a wide range of Operating Systems such as Windows via .NET Framework and .NET Core, Linux via Xorg, macOS. Avalonia is ready for General-Purpose Desktop App Development. However, there may be some bugs and breaking changes as we continue along into this project's development.

Note: The UI theme you see in the picture above is still work-in-progress and will be available in the upcoming Avalonia 0.10.0 release. However, you can connect to our nightly build feed and install latest pre-release versions of Avalonia NuGet packages, if you are willing to help out with the development and testing. See Using nightly build feed for more info.

To see the status of some of our features, please see our Roadmap. You can also see what breaking changes we have planned and what our past breaking changes have been.
