Dear Community,

New version of our open source, free solution is coming, before it happens we would like to give you BETA version of the GrandNode 4.00. From today you can download new version, test it and we are waiting for your feedback. 

In the newest version our main goal was to move GrandNode to ASP.NET Core 2.0. What’s the key? It’s full ASP.NET Core 2.0 which allows you to run GrandNode on Linux, Mac and Windows.  

If you will find any bugs please share your feedback after testing in comments. We'd love to fix everything which will appear before releasing 3.90 final version. 

You are able to download it from our GitHub page. 

ASP.NET Core 2.0 – GrandNode on Linux, MacBook and Windows
