.NEXT

.NEXT (dotNext) is a set of powerful libaries aimed to improve development productivity and extend .NET API with unique features. Some of these features are planned in future releases of .NET platform but already implemented in the library:

Proposal Implementation
Static Delegates Value Delegates
Operators for IntPtr and UIntPtr Extension methods for arithmetic, bitwise and comparison operations
Enum API Documentation
Check if an instance of T is a default(T) IsDefault() method
Concept Types Documentation
Expression Trees covering additional language constructs, i.e. foreach, await, patterns, multi-line lambda expressions Metaprogramming
Async Locks Documentation
High-performance general purpose Write Ahead Log Persistent Log

Quick overview of additional features:

All these things are implemented in 100% managed code on top of existing .NET Standard stack without modifications of Roslyn compiler or CoreFX libraries.

Maintenance support level means that new releases will contain bug fixes only.

Development Process

Philosophy of development process:

  1. All libraries in .NEXT family based on .NET Standard to be available for wide range of .NET implementations: Mono, Xamarin, .NET Core
  2. Compatibility with AOT compiler should be checked for every release
  3. Minimize set of dependencies
  4. Rely on .NET Standard specification
  5. Provide high-quality documentation
  6. Stay cross-platform
  7. Provide benchmarks
