One another improvement that improved the performance was the union of Blazor and .NET MAUI. Additionally was improved the code generation for Arm64 CPUs.
Simplified Coding Experience
With the addition of C# 11 and API improvements to .NET libraries, you're more productive than ever writing code. Now the engineers can easily deploy apps directly to Azure Container Apps for a distributed and scalable cloud-native experience.
Because of improvements in EF 7, now engineers can even query metadata stored in SQL JSON columns directly using Language Integrated Query (LINQ) while handling state-distributed across multiple microservices instances with Orleans, also known as Distributed .NET.
