Update on .NET Hot Reload Progress and Visual Studio 2022 Highlights (microsoft.com)

As a cross-platform .NET developer, these are the only relevant bits to me:

> Earlier this year we announced .NET Hot Reload, an ambitious project to bring Hot Reload to as many .NET developers as possible. ….. I am excited to use this blog post to update you on our progress towards this goal and all the wonderful features that are coming November 8th, 2021 when we hit our GA release.

And then at the bottom of the article:

> …. we are not releasing Hot Reload as a feature of the dotnet watch tool.

So the “exciting” news buried in this article is that the live reload feature that almost all other modern web frameworks have had for years, is being dropped in favour of what seems to be a proprietary feature locked to Visual Studio instead.
