WCF Open Sourced

Core WCF is a new community-owned OSS project under the .NET Foundation

Recently, .NET Foundation announced to support Core WCF.
 
Core WCF is a new community-owned OSS project under the .NET Foundation. Microsoft has made an initial contribution of code from a WCF team member to help get the project started.
 
 
Though Core WCF is not aimed to be a 100% compatible port of WCF to .NET Core, it is a platform to facilitate porting of many WCF contract and service implementations with only a change of namespace.
 
Firstly, it will be for HTTP and TCP SOAP services on-top of Kestrel, the most commonly used transports on .NET Framework.
 
The company said that the project is not yet ready for production and needs people to get involved and help get it there faster. People interested in this, or want more details about the project, can go and explore the Core WCF project on GitHub.
