What version of .NET Core is supported?

As of version 2017.1, Rider supports .csproj-based .NET Core 1.1 applications, including creating from template, loading, editing and debugging.

Rider does not support obsolete project.json-based .NET Core 1.0.x applications, neither does it support .NET Core 2.x.

We expect to support .NET Core 2.0 in Rider 2017.2, which is scheduled for late Q3 or Q4 2017.


I  notice this post is six months old. Is it still the case that you cannot debug .NET Core applications?


I asked that on twitter some time ago.

They answered debugging in .NET Core is currently NOT supported at all and might be supported late in 2017. I do not know if that is the current status.


The .net core (1.x) debugger definitely works :-)


Is it possible that the deadline for .NET Core 2.0 support will be earlier than expected now that .NET Core 2.0 has been released? The only bit that is really missing is the ability to run the tests.
