Porting Assistant for .NET now supports assessment and porting of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Open Web Interface for .NET (OWIN), and ASP.NET System.Web.Mvc namespaces to .NET Core 3.1 or .NET 5. Following the GA release of Core WCF project in February 2021, Porting Assistant can now assess and provide recommendations to port WCF applications to Core WCF. It also supports assessment and porting of OWIN and System.Web.Mvc namespace configurations to .NET Core 3.1 or .NET 5. Developers can use the existing Porting Assistant for .NET tool or Porting Assistant for .NET Visual Studio IDE extension to get started.
