Closing Words

Although .NET 6.0.10 is the latest stable release for .NET, Microsoft is also close to releasing the next stable update: .NET 7. In fact, the .NET RC 2 was released alongside this .NET update, which is the final preview update before the stable version is made public. However, can still be a few weeks till you can install the stable version of .NET 7.

In the meantime, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to .NET 6.0.10 not only for the new features but also for the security patches that will make your system safer.
