    Hey Unity Alpha users!

    The 2022.1 release of Unity brings supports new .NET APIs via .NET Standard 2.1. It also includes full support for all C# 8 features. Please respond here with any questions or issue you find.

    Note that these changes have also been back ported to 2021.2.

    The thread has been receiving regular updates so it's creation date is not a measure of it's current information.

    Many of the features that publicly landed in 2021.2 started out in the 2022.1 (non-public) alpha, as noted in that thread.

    Also, just a month ago, Josh replied regarding .Net 6:
    Josh's communication regarding the recent .Net updates has ben excellent, so I really don't think it helps to ask him the same questions over and over again.

    Since that thread is more general non-version-specific information about .NET ecosystem updates, I'll continue to post on it when things change.

    For this thread, we're focused on 2022.1 alpha issues. From a feature set perspective, that will be C#8 support and .NET Standard 2.1 support. I don't expect any additional .NET features to ship in 2022.1 alpha releases.

    So right now .NET 6 support looks like 2022.2 or later - I don't have enough information yet to be sure though.

    But who cares the LTS version anyway, because we have already moved on to 2024.1 alpha ;)
