AlterNET Studio (WinForms & WPF Tooling/Components) now supports VS 2022, .NET 6

AlterNET Studio, which bundles Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Foundation .NET component libraries and development tools, now supports Visual Studio 2022 and .NET 6.

The paid product, which helps .NET-centric developers extend WinForms or WPF .NET applications with code editing, script execution, and UI design capabilities, Shipped recently in version 8.0. It is a code editor, script and form designer that comes with a set of component libraries that allow coders to write scripts in C#, Visual Basic, TypeScript, JavaScript and Python to extend applications with custom functionality; run and debug scripts with a debug engine and design visual user interfaces.

Along with support for VS 2022 and .NET 6, other enhancements listed by Australia-based software AlterNET include:

  • Demo projects are distributed with source code that can target different .NET frameworks through multi-targeted NuGet packages. This allows users to verify functionality under all supported frameworks including .NET Core 6.
  • User Guides and Reference Documentation goes live allowing us to continually improve the API reference content.
  • Python scripting and debugging now supports the Python 3.7 language specification and allows the use of popular third-party libraries such as NumPy and pandas.
  • Python and C++ debuggers using native tools via Debug adapter protocol (DAP) are now integrated into our solution.
  • WinForms Form Designer now runs on .NET Core 6 and can serialize its content into IronPython code-behind files.
