Microsoft delivered a preview of the next version of its ASP.NET Web development framework at its TechEd 2014 conference, and now that software is able to run on OS X and Linux.

Microsoft announced ASP.NET vNext at TechEd on May 12. ASP.NET vNext is a streamlined framework and runtime that enables developers to optimize cloud and server workloads with maximum agility and performance, Microsoft said. ASP.NET vNext will be a new Microsoft contribution to the .NET Foundation as an open-source project.
