The .NET Core team has released the roadmap for ASP.NET Core 2.1, as well as .NET Core 2.1 and Entity Framework 2.1.
Some of the highlights include the addition of SignalR and Webhooks, as well as various Razor improvements - such as the compilation of Razor pages.
The first preview should be available this month, with the final release slated for the northern hemisphere summer (i.e. sometime towards the middle of the year).
On the .NET Core side, some of the highlights include faster build times and global tools. On the EF side, you can look forward to lazy loading, seed data and much more!
A few bloggers have also written blog posts discussing their personal favourite features from the roadmap:
