Microsoft is ‘sorry' for angering developers by removing a key feature

Asia's Tech News Daily

Microsoft
Microsoft apologised to the open source community after facing a severe backlash against removing an important feature in the upcoming .NET 6 release. The .NET open source community was angered by Microsoft’s decision to remove the Hot Reload capability from the .NET SDK repo. This feature is important as it helps developers to make changes to the course code when a particular app is running and get to see the results of the changes instantly.
Microsoft has now announced that it has “approved the pull request” to re-enable this code path and it will be available in the general availability build of the .NET 6 SDK.
Microsoft had earlier decided to lock the ‘Hot Reload capability’ to Visual Studio 2022– which is limited to Windows and it’s paid. As per a report by The Verge, the decision to remove this feature was a “business-focused move” taken by Microsoft’s head of developer division Julia Liuson.
After reversing the decision to remove Hot Reload capability, Microsoft said, “First and foremost, we want to apologize. We made a mistake in executing on our decision and took longer than expected to respond back to the community.”
In its defence, Microsoft said in an official blog post “With the runway getting short for the .NET 6 release and Visual Studio 2022, we chose to focus on bringing Hot Reload to VS2022 first. We made a mistake in executing this plan in the way it was carried out.”
“We inadvertently ended up deleting the source code instead of just not invoking that code path. We underestimated the number of developers that are dependent upon this capability,” it added.
As per the report by The Verge, the ‘Hot Reload capability’ will be in the general availability build of the .NET 6 SDK available on November 8, 2021.
