Roundup #71: C# Source Generators, MsQuic, CoreBoy, Channels

Introducing C# Source Generators

We’re pleased to introduce the first preview of Source Generators, a new C# compiler feature that lets C# developers inspect user code and generate new C# source files that can be added to a compilation. This is done via a new kind of component that we’re calling a Source Generator.

MsQuic is Open Source

Microsoft is open sourcing our QUIC library, MsQuic, on GitHub under an MIT license. MsQuic is a cross-platform, general-purpose library that implements the QUIC transport protocol. QUIC is being standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). MsQuic is a client and server solution optimized for multiple usage patterns and is used by multiple Microsoft products and services. MsQuic is currently in preview and supports Windows and Linux.
