Recently .NET 6 hit release candidate 1 and its formal release should follow later this fall.

.NET 6 is slated to have a large array of features included in it, and I had the opportunity to write a guest post for Raygun on any .NET topic I chose. That guest post, A look at the upcoming improvements to LINQ in .NET 6, is now live on the Raygun blog for you to check out.

These changes are not Earth-shattering, but represent a good library (LINQ) getting even better and are a glimpse into how the .NET ecosystem evolves and grows in an open source community.

My personal favorite new LINQ feature is the Chunking feature. There have been a significant number of times in my own career that the Chunking feature would have helped simplify some complex code related to paging through data whether it was in a user interface or via an API.

Check out the article and let me know what you think. I’m excited for .NET 6 and it’s nice to see Microsoft’s commitment to the ecosystem remain strong.
