.NET 7 GA available on App Service

1 minute read • By Byron Tardif • November 8, 2022

We have completed the initial rollout for .NET 7 GA support on App Service. Like in previous years we are using the App Service Early Access feature to enable day-0 support on the platform across all public regions on both Windows and Linux App Service Plans. The early access release will be followed by additional deployments to fully integrate the new bits across our fleet expecting to be fully done by the end of the week.

If you already have an app targeting and earlier preview of .NET 7.0 on the platform, there is no need to take action as the new runtime will be picked up on the next application restart once the update is available for your app. You can trigger this manually by starting and stopping your app.

Self-contained .NET apps will not be auto-updated since they have no dependency on the runtime provided by App Service.

Azure Functions and Azure Static Webapps are also enabling .NET 7 workloads across their scenarios.
