Subject Re: Support for lib/csharp .NET Framework before 4.5?
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2019 21:11:27 GMT
So, just to be clear, proposed language removals are:


C++03 or less


JavaME (potential; I’ll look at setting up an Android CI environment and
using the standard Java lib there to see if it’s feasible)
.net 4.5 or less (no vote yet)
One of nodets/ts (can we end up only with one, or are there legitimate
differences between the two was the question)

start a vote. A while ago some people claimed that 4.5+ was not available
their particular subset of Mono. I tend to think that this is no longer the
case anymore, so we should drop anything below 4.5.

And since wer'e at it: Same for Silverlight, if you ask me. It is still
supported until 2012 by Microsoft, but I doubt if anyone really uses it
except for maintaining legacy projects. Maybe we should have a vote about
that too.

Have fun,

We already support netstandard2.0 (.NET Core SDK 2.0) and build
lib/netcore and run cross tests with that. The docker build image
(build/docker/ubuntu-bionic/Dockerfile) defines the version we build
against. I was wondering about the .NET 3.5 in lib/csharp and
whether we really need a 3.5 and a 4.5 csproj. It's not a big deal
really, just a small simplification, but if a lot of people are still on
.NET 3.5 then we may decide not to remove support for it yet.
