Open-Source Friendly Microsoft Releases CoreCLR

Posted on 2.04.2015

Continuing with the progress it has made in taking its .NET framework open source, Microsoft has announced that CoreCLR, the execution engine for .NET Core, is available now on GitHub.

Microsoft's CoreCLR handles tasks including garbage collection, compilation to machine code, and IL byte code loading.

The .NET team indicated that RyuJIT, the .NET GC, native interop and other .NET runtime components are also now available and that they will be adding Linux and Mac implementations of platform-specific components in the near future.
