.NET Core 2.2 has reached end of life #147
.NET Core 2.2 reached end of life on December 23, 2019. This means .NET Core 2.2 is no longer supported and updates will no longer be provided. We recommend moving to .NET Core 3.1, our long term support (LTS) release.
We've created an issue at dotnet/core#4084 for your questions and comments.
.NET Core 2.2 Lifecycle
.NET Core releases belong to one of two support lifecycles: long term support (LTS) and Current. LTS releases are stable release which receive critical updates and are supported for at least three years. Current releases can include new features that may undergo future change based on feedback. Current releases are supported for three months after the subsequent .NET Core major or minor release. Both LTS and Current releases receive critical fixes throughout their lifecycle, for security, reliability, or to add support for new operating system versions. You must stay up-to-date with the latest patches to qualify for support.
.NET Core 2.2 was released in December 2018 as a Current release. Per the lifecycle policy, Current releases reach end of life 3 months after a subsequent release (Current or LTS). .NET Core 3.0 released in September 2019 and began the end of life countdown for .NET Core 2.2 that concluded on December 23, 2019.
.NET Core 2.2 Downloads
.NET Core 2.2 installers, zips and tar.gzs will remain available, but unsupported. This includes existing releases available on Linux package feeds. Previous versions, including 2.2, will be accessible through the Download Archives.
